Trees are a vibrant expression of the earth that we are all grounded in.  They are as individual in their form, development and expression as humans are and they have a message for us.  Sometimes I am so enchanted with the details of the scene, I want to capture it as realistically as possible, and other times, I'm overwhelmed with emotion and my feelings fill the canvas.  When creating a tree portraiture I focus on the tree's message and paint the scene as an expression of how the tree might perceive it's environment.
I live on Galiano Island.

Most of my work has it's origins in nature, the world of dreams and psyche, and the mysterious places in between.  I live close to the woods, have spent much time sitting round small campfires in old forests, sleeping under the stars and next to glacial lakes, looking for salamanders under damp logs, and watching fish swim through bio-luminescence.  I studied at Plymouth College of Art and Design and Cardiff Institute of Art and Design in the U.K.
