My work often has to do with the language of painting: I use ready made images, such as old photos or newspaper cuttings. I enjoy translating one kind of image into another-a photograph may be an image of a style that reminds me of a style of painting, so I turn it into one.The types of image I find in the newspapers alone offer a huge choice to the 'artist-hunter' with an eye for satire.

Mae fy gwaith yn aml yn drin efo'r iaith paentio: rydw i'n defnyddio lluniau parod, er enghraifft hen ffotograffau neu lluniau wedi ei dynnu o gylchgronnau. Rydw i'm mwynhau troi un fath o lun mewn i fath arall. Efallai fydd ffotograff yn atgoffa i o arddull paentio, felly dwi'n gwneud e'n paentiad. Mae'r fath o luniau dwi'n dod ar hud o yn y papurau newydd ar ei hyn yn gynnig dewis enfawr i'r helwyr o artistiaid sydd yn eisiau weld dychan.
