‘I create symbolic and semi-abstract landscape paintings. My artwork conceptually explores the dynamic, transient experience of being alive. I’m interested by the human longing for stability and permanence in the face of a fluctuating reality. My painting process itself explores these ideas, combining fluid and controlled layers of paint, as well as the visual symbols I draw upon.
My recent work depict points of light within dark spaces, trees communicating below and above ground through channels of light- the hidden networks that connect all things, seen and unseen. I have been painting the experience of grief, the threshold between life and death, hope and despair.’
