Inspired by the beauty that surrounds me I paint the elements not as a literal representation but as they come through me as a metaphor. I work in oils, my style is painted both finely with brushes and roughly with palette knives to bring a balance that duality requires to achieve a whole. My technique creates an atmospheric presence that reflects in the title. My work sensitively adheres to the gestures of the colour as I work with combinations that bring an emotional response from the viewer.
