Nature & Moods

Is it a bird ? Is it a tree ? A landscape ? The sea ?

It really doesn’t matter. 
I desperately need nature in my life, and I love to bring it into my work.
It’s challenging to play with different levels of abstraction. To strip away, looking for what’s essential.
Sometimes, I’m struck by a composition, or a color, or a shape. Or there’s a feeling of being alive, being real. A simplicity, that I’m trying to translate into a painting.


I don’t impose any restrictions on the materials I use.
Oil, acrylics, watercolor, ink, pencils, pastels, dirt… it’s all good.

This is the place to go wild – a little.
To go back to the bush. Dream about wood fires and foaming rivers. Howling at the moon at night.
Seeing the beauty of this world again.
