From the artist

To gaze upon and contemplate the intimacies of a landscape’s light, space, colour and texture, captivates and mesmerises me, drawing me into the magic that underlies the natural world. This is a painted world where memory, emotion, and thought materialise into a language articulating my deepest understanding of nature’s beauty and mystery.
