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 mood I like to 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 poetry of the world and in particular the music.
