I am interested in the relationship we have with nature and our environment, both positively, negatively and how this affects us on an emotional level. My paintings feed off the fascination I have with Ecopsychology, Conservation and Biodiversity.

My work taps into our collective subconscious of the deep emotional connection with environment and nature. From a distance, my paintings will simultaneously resemble vast glacial landscapes and intricate microscopic patterns, acting as complementary and contradictory to each other in an encircling game. The natural elements which flow from an emotional outpouring create fractal natural patterns that draw the viewer into a world each viewer translates through their own perception of the natural world. Different aspects of each of my works can be viewed as a mountainside, cell structure, flowing rapids and perplexing botany patterns – all combined and swirled together – to create timeless works of art that could be appreciated at any time in human history.
