The planet is both a wild and industrialized place, with few untouched places left free to claim their natural terrain and grow with abandon. My paintings show the duality of the untamed wilderness, vibrant, organic colours, and the interference of man-made structures and the effects of pollution, violence and destruction.

My vision is one that sees both the beauty of the boundless forests, the quietude of a lake in the evening and the fragile balance between organic freedom and mankind.

I am inspired by the colours of the sky and the earth, vibrant, ever changing with the path of the sun. Every canvas is a testament to the unchangeable relationship between humanity and nature, and a reference to spiritual healing.
