  • Biography
The powerful sensations of being in nature are what my work explore. The quiet moments of restoration and peace that can come from being lost in the old world, the natural world. Living more connected and bringing its effects to life is my effort to communicate what is at stake with our natural environments. Our empathy and memories need to be stirred in order for us to realise the consequences of our actions. I strive for a balance between the actuality of the landscape we see in front of us and the one we feel and remember. By using restricted close palettes, I aim for the image to go in and out of focus - for you to be caught looking deeper and deeper for its meaning. It is why my work is often accompanied by poems; a series of clues and directions of what the viewer should focus on, within the painting and within themselves.
