"My work is about the people and places I have known either at home in East Anglia or from further afield during my travels abroad. The character of any town or village is largely a product of the people who live and work there.

People form an important part of my work and are often placed in the picture like characters on a stage but sometimes form a more central role.

People bring the pictures to life and I take great pleasure placing them there. They all have their own stories."
