At the heart of my work is an empathy and deep respect for the simple beauty of the earth and nature. My landscapes, seascapes and botanical paintings are inspired by an enduring love for the spirit and wisdom of the land.
There are certain special moments, an unusual slant of light, a splash of colour, a fleeting reflection, the feel of the wind or mist, that awaken us and remind us of the extraordinary magic of life. These moments, however brief, breathe life into the daily round. For me this happens in nature. It is the light and uniqueness of a seemingly ordinary scene that draws me to paint it...to spend time with it... and hopefully to share the inspiration of it.
