My artistic practice is inspired by earth, water and atmosphere. What I experience in the outdoors is translated into paintings which illuminate landscapes and seascapes; oil paintings created to share the beauty as well as juxtaposition of calm and chaos that is our natural world.
Field experiences are the foundation of larger oil paintings on canvas. Colour, composition and light are integral considerations when developing a painting. Each creation results from a deliberate process using layers to create a depth that translates movement, light and shadow. Layers of oil paint, glazes and veils, results in a multi-dimensional, illuminated quality of atmosphere, earth and water, varying in intensity to engage viewers both emotionally and intellectually.
