Artist's description:

The figurative pieces are made up of several steps, the first by laying the support on a flat table and pouring the paint, letting it do its own thing, dancing and flowing around the surface, the outcome is unknown but exciting. I try not to control this stage too much however I do want to have areas of dark hues for shadows and light hues for highlights on the figures.
When dry, I chose an image from the array I have either taken or collected. The painting process is intuitive as I reveal or conceal the figure, allowing 'delicious' parts of the ground to be seen through the flesh of the figure and some to be concealed. The recent paintings have been embellished with tattoos, decorative imagery, flowers, and birds, some of which have taken flight from the confines of the body. I grew up in New Zealand so people with tattoos were common place within the Maori culture displaying the 'Moko' tribal tattoos.
This sexy girl has a full back tattoo and is sitting in a sea of vibrant colours of red and orange hues. Her tattoo has a koi, lotus flowers, roses and a skull in a flowing river of blue.
