"Subject matter covers a broad spectrum including landscape, flowerpieces and portraits. However, I am essentially a conveyor of dreamlike visions with elements of surrealism, and my works are imbued with a subtle symbolism. My main concern is with the timeless quality of mans' dialogue with nature and thereby himself, rather than the fleeting drama of the moment."…Simon Jones
