My paintings are influenced by my passion for the natural world, concerned with preservation of and reconnection with the environment.

I explore through mix of figurative abstract marks the notion of solitude, driven by my experiences of isolation in the rugged New Zealand terrain; craggy mountains, dense undergrowth, deep waters. Aware of the ever present survival instinct, I am focussed and in the moment; a combination of awe and terror, seeking the sublime.
