Lloyd prefers to work from the mind and rarely produces art from source images.

 

Instead preferring to work intuitively step by step letting the painting take its own direction along the creative process.

"...there are modern aspects to my work, there are surreal aspects, there are fantasy aspects, ...it's all just me"
