Story:

The last piece to the Animals exhibition, it was completed at 6am on the day of the opening. Shortly after I had finished painting, Ching, the cat of the house went to step on the wet canvas. One of my housemates caught him and lifted him off the painting. He had left a single perfect paw print in the middle of his nose.

I love to use a small pallet of colours. Often in my work I use metallic to compliment and add movement. Choosing different colours can create many different moods.
