My work is primarily concerned with nostalgia, the past and, disappearing worlds. My paintings quite often feature derelict or neglected urban or seaside scenes or places on the verge of transformation. My recent visit to Cuba has enabled me to document a country deeply rooted in the past but anticipating a new and uncertain future.
