I look for links, clues and connections between the visible and the invisible worlds and seek to find the inspiring, poetic or philosophical thought that may be suggested by an aspect of a landscape, a person, wildlife or cityscape.
I work from sketches or photos that I collect in travels or personal situations. I always paint in a state of deep relaxation as I try to let the subconscious take over. Usually the canvas ends up a compsite of different sketches, and therefore becomes a unique glimpse of something that was not there, but is. The idea represented within the painting then becomes clear.
While I believe in the power of a representational image, for such images can evoke powerful emotions, I also am intellectual enough to seek meanings beyond the physical that might relate to our lives, very much in the tradition of ancient chinese philosophers when they contemplated nature.
