“My work is a personal form of navigation of the landscape around us, a visual processing of structure and space with blurred boundaries between the conscious and subconscious.
Central to my practice is the examination of recurring patterns in nature and landscape, balancing graphic shapes with texture and repeat mark making to focus on depth, light and natural forms.
I aim to capture a sense of nature’s energy, shifting light on landscape, and fleeting moments of changing depths. It is ultimately my emotional and physical responses to this which drives my practice.”
