'Why paint?' is a question which haunts me as much as it has done artists since photography was invented - and it's something which continues to challenge us as technology moves onward. I began to explore these ideas through a series of photo-paintings and these continued across themes for several years.

Without going into theoretical detail, the answer lies for me, somewhere in the physicality of the paint; the texture and narrative it has of its own which adds to the story of the image.
