Artists Statement:

The natural environment and solitude are two themes that I continue to explore in my work. I focus on what I term environmental landscapes – paintings that combine the reality of the natural environment with personal interpretation. I am interested in the real and perceived power of nature; the healing, rejuvenation and symbolism found through and in nature. The images are derived from a single or several journeys where I explore, primarily, the outside world. Earth-forms and places discovered on these journeys are the primary inspiration for my work.
