For me it begins with an irrepressible urge to share the vibrating energy and awe that I feel in nature. When I translate that to the canvas, there is an adrenaline-filled anticipation, like stand- ing on the edge of a cliff. Painting is my extreme sport.


I choose oil paint, with all its velvety richness, to capture the sensory experience of wandering through the forest; crushing wintergreen between my fingers to release the burst of cool mint; feet falling on bouncy, electric moss, following a winding path of colours, smells, sounds and textures. After the paint cures, it continues to live wth every brushstroke recorded in glowing ridges, grooves and vivid texture.


My world is alive with vibrant and colliding colour. I like to think of my art as windows into a way of seeing with wonder.
