“I am eternally inspired by nature and I constantly strive to capture its fleeting forms in all of my work.
Nature can be seen as a form of poetry which contains subjective, yet universal meaning. It’s that meaning that I’m after in my work…. If I have captured the “spirit” of a scene and conveyed it to you, then I have succeeded in my task as an Artist”.
