For myself as an artist influences are difficult to articulate because most are layered deep within subconscious thought and are transcendent in nature. However, when pressed for a reply I am considering contemporary art in the broadest of terms and am including musicians, writers, and visual artists as I feel all creative expression is one continuum and very linked. The artists I am mentioning take a similar thematic approach as I do in my work and that is a narrative element, a sense of place, poetic expression, marking of time, dreams and the figure. The influences I am alluding to are fluid, frequently changing and nonlinear as is most of life.

So here goes in random order.
