"If you truly love nature,Vincent Van Gogh
you will find beauty everywhere."
Under the Cherry Blossoms, Jardin des Plants, Paris
What inspires me most is nature! It might be a quiet, misty and mysterious morning, an iconic Myopia fox hunt, or a breezy, sun-scorched, summer afternoon with a symphony of buzzing cicadas. Whether I'm in a salt marsh, a hay field, a farm or a forest, I feel a peaceful and solitary connection with nature, and I try to convey that stillness and feeling of isolation from the world onto the canvas, to capture the essence and spirit of a place - to reach even somewhere beyond that space. Dancing light, swirling textures and magnificent colors come alive through my brushes and paints and the final outcome is a kind of alchemy that sometimes surprises even me.
