Statement:

   "In my work I try to bring the viewer into a new and potential obtuse sense of space and colour". To imagine a world of visual possibilities. "I have always been deeply moved by the colourful patterns and subtle shades of light upon the landscape".  The warm sparkle of fresh snow in a cool brilliant winter light or the patterns made by trees dancing in the wind, the soft ghostly lost edges from water falling and splashing on rocks.  To be at once both aware of the reality and intrigued by the fanciful possibilities.  As an artist I try to capture the essence of the moment, distill out what is unnecessary and add my twist so the viewer is left with impression of the landscape that will endure through time."
