As an artist, I want my art to represent nature refines, to bring together the old and new, the ancient and modern, linked by wisdom from the past into the present. I want my work to be as intense, beautiful and spirit-filled as life itself, always offering a wealth of emotion for the viewer to consider.

I am concerned with the inner person, how life interacts with us, how we communicate our life’s lessons, joys, sorrows, wisdom and love.

I work in many mediums to create layers, textures, depth and emotion, always exploring the subtleties in our world… to render them and, in turn, share with the viewer with the hope that they too will ponder life and experience self.
