My subject matter varies widely as does my choice of media.
My upbringing was fed emotionally and imaginatively by a highly intelligent communist mother, and her tales of my father sent back to his homeland of Czechoslovakia. In my teens she married a Nigerian and, our home was a hub of international friends. My intellect and sensitivities were fed by a complex weave of Marxist politics, wonderful stories, the countryside, and growing up poor in Chelsea with all its eccentricities, and with London’s great museums nearby where I spent many happy and absorbed hours. It was tough; but it was rich; it made me a thinker; an internationalist, and a humanist. My art is the landscape of all these things.
