Really would love to paint more singers. Had this big blonde mop of hair I was keen to paint and at the time Carly Simon was playing on the radio. Theres a bit of Carly, coming through in this work. I used part of the line 'the way that you hold me whenever you hold me... theres some kind of magic inside you...' for the title.

An inspiration for 'I can see you, but I can't hear you, turn your camera on' was the beautiful portraits of Jim Nutt. I thought of the title when I was thinking about the difficulty sometimes with communicating on phone or Skype. Their eyes don't meet yours and it cuts out sometimes during crucial moments.

The inspiration for 'Reclining nude with samsung galaxy' was close to home

Wheres Molly? Can you spot my little porcelain bust in Katherine Hattams recent work.

Rihanna and Drake

This guy would sit next to an ATM and watch the traffic all day, near our apartment in Bangkok.  He looked much older than in my painting and seemed so quiet as the traffic buzzed pass.
