PJ Lynch

"As a representational artist I strive to understand my world by painting and drawing what I see around me, and as a story-teller I look for the narrative in everything, whether it is hidden in the weathered features of a face, in the arrangement of a collection of objects or in the mystery of a door that lies intriguingly ajar."
