"
The 'Man of Mystery' character has become one of the main icons in the world I have created, and I've really enjoyed watching his popularity grow. It is really important to continue to take these special characters on their respective journeys, developing both the narrative between each painting and the characters themselves. I hope 'Metropolis' will appeal to this tradition that leads us back through the various images to 'The Journeyman,' my first ever street scene and the creation of the mysterious Victorian man. I continue to be fascinated by the many interpretations and guises he takes on. Who is this 'Man of Mystery?' He is whoever you want him to be."

"As much of the original inspiration for my work was derived from puppet theatre, the natural progression was to have some made. I collaborated with Craig Denston, one of the countries leading puppeteers and designers. I then decided it would be great fun to bring them into the gallery environment as part of my ‘Homes & Hearts’ tour, which added a diverse element to these exhibitions.

The wonderful assortment of characters that appear in my paintings take inspiration from a number of sources including illustration, story books and theatre. There is often a narrative element to be found within my work, people interpret my characters in so many ways, take the Victorian man for instance, is he Jack the Ripper, a magician, or a Phileas Fogg type of character? I like to keep his identity a closely guarded secret, hence his title the ‘Man of Mystery’.

The tramp is one of my favourite characters, he is not really anybody in particular, but there is a touch of Charlie Chaplin about him. I wanted to introduce a character who lives in the modern world. The little tramp is a figure of optimism, looking to a future full of hope. When explaining my work I feel it’s best not to give everything away, leaving it open to interpretation."
