The following works are all self portraits, to me, these are paintings in which I just happen to be.

Some of the works refer to my family and contain objects that relate to my past.

  Some are quiet, reflective images, deep in concentration.

Above My Head oil and graphite on canvas 50x50cm

I lay in a bed the colour of mustard yellow with delicate birds painted above my head.
