The most important thing for me when painting is to make something that is beautiful;
 to try and show both the spectacular and the quiet beauty of the natural and supernatural worlds.
When I paint, I love most engaging in the dance between chaos and order
that generates a dual reality; the physical qualities of the paint and canvas
and the window into another reality that the illusion allows. 

Having attended a sculpture course at Shute Farm Studios in Somerset a few years ago,
I feel inspired to focus more on carving in the future.
I enjoy the simplicity and elemental quality of shaping natural stone and wood, from the
brutal and energetic reduction of material to the subtle refining of form and surface.
