"Current work features a series of paintings celebrating work images in the British ship building yards, the British coal mines and in deep sea fishing, evoking the atmosphere of industry in the pre and post war years. What would now be considered harsh conditions of work often led to deafness, injuries and fatalities.  In this existence the painted figures become bound together in a confiding attitude. There was a great camaraderie among them and I now see these groups of workers as a corporate host of ghosts who's lives contained little in the way of recreation. Walking or cycling to work with the ever present cigarette and dwarfed by the vastness of ships or winding gear these are subjects that can barely be done the justice they deserve".
