Surrealism has inspired me the most as an artist as to me it's the freedom to create anything.  I am a big fan of the whimsical and amusing,  When I'm creating  art  it is like putting together a puzzle as I place my ideas together bringing a new image to life. Since a young child I have been fascinated by hidden faces, optical illusions and telling a story through a picture.  Fascinations  that project into a  majority of my personal work.

I have done a lot of paintings with hidden faces over the years, most notably are these two that have won surreal competitions and influenced the series of illustrations below.
