As a painter, I am constantly inspired by the natural world and the unseen forces that shape it. My work often takes the form of abstract landscapes and floral compositions, but rather than simply depicting the visible forms of these subjects, I aim to capture the underlying energies and rhythms that animate them.

In my abstract landscapes, I use colour, line, and form to evoke the movement of wind, water, and other elements, as well as the passage of time and the cycles of growth and decay. These paintings are meant to be experienced as meditative spaces, where the viewer can lose themselves in the fluid dynamics of the composition and connect with the deeper rhythms of nature

My floral paintings, meanwhile, are an exploration of the hidden forces that shape the growth and development of individual plants. I am fascinated by the way that flowers and other plants seem to embody the life-force of the natural world, and I try to capture this energy in my work through expressive brushstrokes and bold use of colour

Ultimately, my goal as an artist is to create paintings that invite the viewer to see the world in a new way, to look beyond the surface appearances of things and discover the hidden beauty and power of the natural world. Whether I am working in a more representational or abstract style, I hope that my paintings can provide a sense of connection and inspiration for anyone who engages with them.
