Artist's Statement

The exploration of nature, alchemy and spirit fuels my work as an artist. Making my own mediums using quartz, marble dust, mica, metal pigments, raw pigment, polymer and patina, I'm turning the canvas substrates to metal and stone and observing chemical reactions with colour and earth based materials

Using a combination of old fresco techniques and abstract expressive investigations of nature, there is transformational phenomena in the magic of colour captured, revealing how light and form is created in endless layers of veiled depth. The work recalls meditation, dreams, lucid moments of reality and deep experiences with nature. Exploring the cosmic nature of consciousness, perception is explored through texture and tone.
