From the artist

I am always delighted by Tasmania's winter light, particularly that of the early morning. There is a brightness and clarity. Glimpses of vibrant colour.
The first time I saw the wall like bank of mist lingering over Perth, it afforded the quality of mystery I so much enjoy in pictures.
All human instruction, direction and even momentum are subject to the quelling effect of nature. Becoming engulfed, we may choose to enjoy nature itself.
