Mixed Media, Painting/Drawing, Various

Essentially my art is 'political'. It attempts to engage with the truth about environmental, conflict and social issues. I think it is important that art is also concerned with these. I was motivated at first by being involved with the anti-war movement, inspired by the atrocities reported in the media and confirmed during protest rally speeches and demonstrations, plus the censorship, misinformation and surrounding lies. Investigative journalism from alternative media, documentaries helped high-light these, which continued with other events, eg, climate change, the pandemic and related issues.
