painting. Often working from media images, Large-scale paintings

of contemporary zeitgeist into overwhelming tableaux of allegorical
fantasy. I am very busy as my interest in this career has developed
around Europe and because of your academic studios and my own work
experience you were selected to work for me as my PA. Please read
