Jean-Thelonious Van Doyle

In how few words can you sum up your art?  Say you had 5 seconds to explain it to someone.  I'd go with ... contemplative of the real world, deliberately "naive", void, and Jazzy.  Or if I had to give my art a name people would understand I'd name it Jean-Thelonious Van Doyle... by the way Doyle refers to Sam Doyle, a semi-well know outsider artist from the island of St. Helena.  But I must say I absolutely detest explaining my work in relation to other artists.  Why?  Because then people stop thinking and cling to what they already know... or cling to what they think they already know.
Sam Doyle
