Inspired by a childhood full of adventures and encouraged by a creative and talented family, my passion for art started early in life. I am stirred by the power, colour, mystery and contrasts of the natural world and whilst I often use living energy - animals, people, the ocean, plants and trees as subject matter, I also include inert objects as a medium - eggs, sand, drift wood and recycled things (pages from my grandfather’s books), as a background  to create a dreamlike, textured, collage effect.

My work is a metamorphosis, beginning with an idea, a pause in time where I see a uniqueness that must be translated to the canvas, a photo taken, a sketch and then layering and transformation of a mix of medium, to the point where my minds eye feels the capture of a work of art.
