Botanical

Nature and the environment around me, is always my first source of inspiration. I work intuitively and during the art-making process there is a soliloquy between me and the artwork which manifests visually. This internal form of communication is an intimate experience which I share with the viewer. It is not my aim for the viewer to understand me but rather to share in the experience of the image’s beauty.

In this image, the flower represents my life. The deterioration therein represents various hardships but, my faith has helped me to be sanguine or optimistic regardless of those circumstances.
