My studio is the only place I have where can go and for a short time and forget all my responsibilities. It is my thinking space, my breathing space, a space where I can go and work, without judgement or interruption.
I sometimes start working with no preconceived thoughts or idea other than to explore the medium in front of me, concentrating more on atmospheric perspective and depth It does not simulate or pretend to be anything other than what it is, an instinctive and undisguised emotional event. Birds and creatures feature in my work describing both the strength and fragility of living. I am in fascinated by the dichotomy of the natural world including that of humanity.
