“ I work quickly but in a controlled fashion . My work is direct . It embraces chaos but out of chaos comes a sense of order .I look at buildings , both old and new , and put my own slant on things . They are not chocolate box interpretations of houses nor are they photographic representations . They tend to be gritty with an air of romance .”
