Portfolios > Tall Tales

These paintings are my take on the endless potential for mystery inherent in the world around us. I grew up fascinated by myths, folk tales & ghost stories, an instinctive human response to tell stories about our surroundings seen through a different lens, from a different angle or in a different light. Things you might not ordinarily notice or give a second thought about can suddenly fill you with wonder, or a disquieting unease, or both.
