Nature is my primary source of inspiration, and it’s impact on my art is quite powerful. ultimately though, the content of my work unfolds from the process itself, and the meaning of a painting is intertwined and often reveals itself to me through the trials and triumphs of techniques and discovery. I start my work from observation, as much as possible absorbing the visual essence of my subject and what is it about it that moved me, aiming for authenticity within my interpretation. I am drawn by contrast and movement, and by the element of mystery.
