For me art is not just a visual experience it is the expression of my various interests exploration, learning, memory and experience. The visual medium I use to integrate all of this together. This guides my brush and my current works in landscape painting.
The wilderness offers stories and escapes that are individual. The feeling of being centred in the natural environment away from constructed life is something one has to experience.
I strive to show this through tones, colours and focus. Some parts of the scene maybe suggested while others are brought into focus. My aim is feeling rather then an anatomical study of scenery. I prefer to draw people in and wake memories of similar experiences.
