Meditative explorations of water light and ever changing fluid surfaces work as inspiration. My process is drawn from memory, Emotionally driven- absorbing power, energy and the beauty of my subject... Later to be expressed in my studio.
Creating intuitively is liberating, in-turn the viewer is free to have their own vision, interpretation gleaned from experience, nostalgia or see their world in a different way...
