about the art
Through poetry, prose and visual art, I make tangible the ever present wonders of ordinary existence. I seek to convey the tantric, tactile essence of my subjects and of emotive human experience. My art is inventive and exploratory, continuously building upon its foundations. Through novel reimaginings my creative practice is renewed and reinvigorated over evolving iterations. My most pervasive themes are rain, music, food, movement and landscape. Through portraiture, I am currently exploring people, places, animals and the many objects which fill our days.
