statement

My art is mainly inspired by nature. I love the wild grasses, flowers, and changes with the seasons in the landscape.

Colour, texture, and patterns really interest me also. I am fascinated by how nature shows itself in the simplest of settings like a dandelion seed finding its way into cracks in stonework of old crumbling buildings, roofs, walls etc., making its home there - to me, there is beauty and strength in that. I work from a deep feeling for nature and try to convey this sense of awe to the viewers of my art.
