The beauty of the world around inspires me, present within all things: landscape, the sea, a still life or the inherent beauty in people. All held in the interplay of light, mood and composition. I am compelled to slow down and look more closely – to truly see those things we can often pass by unnoticed. I believe this intrinsic beauty gives us glimpses of the Sacred.
The act of painting is then an interpretation of what I see and sense. This involves the texture of the paint, the process of mixing the colours on the palette, the magic of putting it on the canvas and witnessing the alchemy of images, textures and forms emerging.
