For me, it always begins with an irrepressible urge to share the vibrating energy and awe of nature. Every time I go to translate that to the canvas, there is an adrenaline-filled anticipation, like standing on the edge of a cliff.

I choose oil paint, with all its velvety juiciness, to capture the sensory experience of wandering through the forest; crushing wintergreen between my fingers to release the burst of cool mint; touching bouncy, electric moss. After the paint cures, it continues to live, every brushstroke recorded in glowing ridges and grooves; It’s all about vivid texture!

My world is alive with vibrant and colliding colour. I like to think of my art as windows into a way of seeing with wonder.
