Color Studies for St Martin

Oil paint on paper

I am a creator of places. My artworks show landscapes with a surrealist twist to them and a dreamlike, sometimes dark, quality. Places to hide or to get lost; to feel trapped in or liberated. I like to see them as places of liminality: States between what we accept as reality and a deeper, subconscious dimension.

I am also concerned with the human-nature relationship. Are we part or separate from nature? What is our place in the world and how can we improve our connection to it? 

The work of the eyes is done. Go now and do the heart-work on the images imprisoned within you.

- Rainer Rilke
