Through my art practise I endeavour to create visually luxurious paintings informed by the sights and sounds of the places I travel and explore, within and without. Delving deep into the inner realms through meditation, music, dance and ceremony I draw inspiration from these wonders. Concerned with colour, composition and atmospheric tone I create a constant flux between the more quiet and chaotic forces in the work. In essence I am interested in creating a pictorial landscape where the paintings seem to possess their own logic in an attempt to translate the poetic qualities of the world and in particular to pay homage to music and the natural world.
