"Who are these people and what might they be doing? Like everyone, I live day to day with a cast of characters from my past into the present. Some, such as my dear, dead parents act out imagined little dramas like their last meal together in my attempt to understand who they were and who I am. My work, like that of all artists, is largely self portraiture but as a generalised view of the business of being human, and of being alive."
