I find this is true in my quest to produce relevant, meaningful and beautiful art work. I am called to paint the natural landscapes of our world, the grandeur as well as the close-ups of flora and fauna. It is in nature that I find pleasure, solace and peace. It’s like being home to me. Each painting subject presents its own challenge. It is often a struggle to interpret the excitement, fascination and awe I experience onto a flat canvas so that others may tangibly feel the energy of life. The desire to present my view of the world’s visual miracles began when I was a small child; gathering tools and skills along the way with each drawing and painting, I have endeavoured to present my truth.
