I am a Symbolist painter. The paintings are composed of a series of symbolic images that evoke an aesthetic emotion and reflect social/cultural narratives.

The seeds of my artistic journey were planted early in my life living in the south of England. I travel to many countries in search of the natural beauty in this world. The mountains, oceans, rivers, and waterfalls still inspire my compositions. Now my work explores the beauty of the human body combined with landscapes. For me, these are the best of my inspired observations in life; the human body and Nature. The two subjects are a unified series of lines and compositions that create a natural balance of aesthetic beauty. I construct these compositions within a matrix of color fields, light, sound and poetry that explore the multiple layers of the human experience. My materials are ceramic porcelain with colored underglaze painting with colored glazes.

Artistic creation requires not only technique but also the need for the expression of ideas, concepts and aesthetics.
