I paint for my own personal escapism and to offer the door to days of romance and adventure to others. I like to stick to themes- British policemen, nuns, Alice in Wonderland but I always return to women on large motorcycles and the jungle adventures because they delight me personally. Sometimes mothers buy them for them for their children and they tell me the kids take them with them when they leave home. The thought someone grew up with one of my pictures and still liked it as a teenager is very rewarding.
