For me, its important that art can be fun, aesthetically pleasing, as well as controversial or political. I feel that the zeitgeist at the moment is for art to make a “point”. I like to make whatever I’m inspired to create, rather than panda to what’s the latest “in thing”.
I like beauty, nature, objects with meaning, and what would probably be called “kitch”, although growing up with this stuff in my Granny and Aunt’s house it was and is the ultimate in loveliness to me. I am also keen on Surrealism, as I grew up being taken to Brighton art gallery which held a Magritte and two Salvador Dali’s at the time.
