Text: Artist Statement

“We are immersed in volumes of magnificent coloured light, yet spend large amounts of time absorbed by trivial events. In my forest paintings, I portray the explosion of life and energy inherent in every square yard surrounding us.”

“With my art, I hope to expand appreciation for the subtlety of nature and the ever changing life that surrounds us. Awareness brings appreciation and appreciation may perhaps develop a conscious effort to live in a state of sustainable coexistence with our planet. ”
