The purpose of my works is to invite people to connect with the Earth, and our environment. To take a moment to consider our relationship with the planet and time.
Many of my paintings are produced by simulating the natural processes of corrosion, sedimentation and evaporation as layers of pigment, ink, wax and paint are added and removed and allowed to dry at various speeds. What at first appears an abstract image might become an aerial view of an imaginary landscape.
I consider the human position in the natural world, and have explored the idea of mapping and recording the surface of the earth, by attempting to present the micro as the macro. In this way a small area of floor, or a small York paving stone, might become a continent or ocean.
