Whilst looking carefully, nothing is obvious.

As an artist, whether from the perspective of a single work or an installation, I try to offer the viewer space to reflect. Images to revisit over time. In my paintings, I try to create a resonance that touches the viewer on an essential human level. Trees and landscapes become places to map out thought, feelings and ideas. It is the earth that ultimately connects us.

Through careful attention to detail, I hope to convey commitment and presence. Using painting as a language, I am interested in the power of art to affect us in daily life. The theme – in the blue – is a theme that touches us all. Not only us, but those to come. The idea of bringing people into the gallery exhibition to collectively engage with this theme emerges from a shared dilemma: how to respond to our troubled earth?
