I am a painter who layers brilliant birds, flowers and landscape over symbol and pattern. My process involves applying paint and glazes onto recycled hardwood doors using my own hand cut stencils. While not attempting a literal portrayal, I always include realistic images in the final layers.
Always inspired by nature and design – my subjects are elegant symbols of beauty, of fragility and impermanence. Their grace and vulnerability connect us with our deeper selves and beyond. My intention is to cause a spark of imagination and emotional response in the viewer – allowing new interpretations and personal connections to the natural world.
