Artist Statement;
My work is deeply inspired by music, place, faith, and the human condition. It is a visual journal of emotion, events, experience and growth portrayed in bold colour and line that explore and investigate the internal landscape. The paintings are interspersed with writings (poetry, lyrics, prayers).
