Currently working as an artist.
“My work evolves from my natural surroundings. Texture, line and colour are elements that echo as I work through the passage of developing a blank surface to finished image.
I build layers. I erase. I assemble. I alter, until I am satisfied that I have captured the mood and beauty that nature provides.
Nature is repetitious and each season brings a memory; a visual, overlapped map that tells a story of new life and death. The destruction that rain and fire can bring, and the beauty that results. Each pod, seed, pebble and shell share a story.
I feel grounded, connected, stitched to the intricacies of the natural world and compelled to create its expression.”
