"Nature inspires my semi-abstract acrylic artwork. This is a visceral connection; a conduit to bring my mood into the painting process. When I paint a skyscape, I am not setting out to paint 'clouds', but rather an impression of color, movement, and negative space. When I paint 'clouds' I am painting how I am feeling at that moment."

"My acrylic paintings explore the captivating world of plants through vibrant close-ups. As we increasingly disconnect from the natural environment, my work aims to reignite our connection and foster a sense of reverence for the natural world.


In my newer works, I seek to celebrate the resilience and interconnectedness of nature and humanity. I use a duotone palette to create a visual language that merges plants and the figure into a cohesive whole, allowing me to distill the essence of both elements, emphasizing their shared characteristics and blurring the boundaries between them. Together, they convey a narrative of unity, reminding us of our shared existence and encouraging a renewed sense of stewardship and responsibility. "
