‘Keep it simple and do it with love. In my painting I pursue the inner life in preference to the external. In one sense all art is inner if it works at all. It is all a searching, as it occurs to the painter, an expression of truth to the subject.
I value the poetic and the lyrical in painting and life and consider life itself to be an affirmation and a blessing, something to be cherished and nurtured while it is also painful and utterly impossible at times…‘ Benet Haughton
