I create because I can lose myself entirely within that present moment. Over the last 15 years I have discovered that with the most mundane ingredients I am able to create something that vibrates with its own raw energy. I relish the moments when my creations make people stop and enjoy an experience.
I derive much of the inspiration for my artwork from my encounters as a naturalist guide, a childhood spent in India, and by my background in zoology.
I am drawn to universal patterns found in the artwork of almost every culture. In my work one will find intricate designs and an abundance of texture. I frequently use mixed media and recycled materials, a fusion of different elements, adding tactile dimensionality and visual interest to my work.
