The House, A Home series examines how we experience the subject of home.  The paintings in this series are derived from found magazine images promoting interior design and household goods.  Each painting begins life from a figurative base only to become increasingly abstracted and allusive, thereby examining the role of desire and wish fulfilment the original image contained,

The paintings convey an understanding that the possession of objects serve a social and emotional function, and that the aspiration for an appealing living space is a human comfort.  There can be a conflict, however, in the need to reject perfectionism in our personal space with the desire to dwell in a beautiful environment.
