I have always held a passion for Art Practice although my previous career has been within the Horticultural industry and plant science research. I previously gained qualifications for Horticulture, Applied Biology (Plant Sciences). Since 1998 I have increased my education in art as a change in direction. My specific interests are three dimensional work with kinetic elements, painting, printing, sound art and video. My work aims to show my fascination with living organisms, a constant cycle of new life and degeneration. I consider organic function to be similar to that of a machine and the cycle of time.
I have developed my approach to landscape painting over the past twenty years using multiple layers of oil paint, thickener sand glazes. I feel my love of colour and passion for creating work that is as audacious as the elements themselves produces a personal style that I hope echoes the vibrancy of nature.
