A Portal to the Past – 150x80cm – This painting highlights my memories from childhood where I grew up in Thailand and Malaysia. When visiting Asia I am reminded of those times. The heady mix of smells, sounds and exotic food tastes come flooding back to me like a tide. I think that background and culture, influences the styles and choices one makes when making choices while painting. Choosing forms, shapes and colours are just a reflection of who you are and where you have been. The future is still a mystery!
