"I strive to create meditative interpretations of the surreal beauty I find in nature... to reflect a sense of the atmosphere of a place; the subtle nuances and rich textures that suggest both the seen and unseen elements. Each piece is built up gradually over time with a series of opaque layers and transparent glazes on either a gesso panel or a stretched canvas. There is a quiet intensity to the whole process and my hope is that I can create for the viewer a poetic, soulful presence in each piece."
