My images invite viewers to share boundless pictorial spaces inspired by nature and humanity. The compositions draw emotions and feelings alongside themes of birth/death, creation/destruction, regeneration and constantly changing structures such as fire and the universe. My work is heavily influenced by the effects of light, from a cosmic Big-Bang to the glow of a desert city in the last throes of a scorching sunset. Communicating through suggestive rather than representational pictures withcolouras the central force of the creative process and charging my work with symbolic meaning I attempt to give the paintings a physical presence that is both abstract and referential.
