Inspired by a summer of love in San Francisco, 1960′s space travel, psychedelic revelry and nightmare, music festivals and war, places in dreams, peace, love and nostalgic hauntings. I mix elements of surrealism and pop art in a collage effect. Random characters and inanimate objects inhabit the same space and colours and patterns vie for attention within the composition.
