To be immersed in my work is to experience the natural world at a visceral, almost preconscious, level. Each painting forms a snapshot into the shadowy world of my own cognitive landscape. I combine a farrago of textures and media—watercolour, acrylic, pastel, ink, conte— into delicate layers that echo a dream-like state, with intentional detail superimposed upon these transient landscapes.
My work is created by instinct, like telling a story through my own perception of the natural world, almost as if through a filter of my unconscious mind. Drawing and painting are the eternal journeys whereby I measure the relationships between myself and the natural world. Marks, lines, elements, shapes, the shifting seasons: these familiar subjects and processes serve as transient yet consistent touchstones for me. I am inspired by the eternally shifting bouquet of colours, textures and shapes, and memories of visited locales and current surroundings.
