I do not see my food paintings as 'still life'. I see them as dinner - about the importance of preparing and eating a meal with family and friends, about the swirl of a lively kitchen and the goodness of wholesome ingredients.
I don't think you or I will do anything more important today than cooking or enjoying a meal for your family or friends!. Yes, we all work, but we are all working to put food on the table.
I am painting for the kitchen, the place where food creates family and friends.
