"A love of nature and inner spirituality has been an ongoing inspiration for my artwork. Each painting captures the essence of the subject, balancing exquisite detail and a focus on light. Based upon realism yet drawing upon a luminscent dream-like quality, it is a truly original interpretation of the natural world. The wildlife studies have explored expressive animal gestures in their natural habitats. I am hoping to raise awareness of the beauty and fragility of the earth and build support towards ensuring its survival for future generations"
