I am inspired by the movement of nature, particularly the sea; the vivid beauty of reefs and the dancing motion of their shoaling fish.
A trip to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef made a lasting impression. Along with seeing the life, beauty and fragility of the reef islands, came the acknowledgment that this ephemeral underwater world may disappear in our lifetime. I want to capture this transient beauty, just for a moment, in my paintings. For me, and in my work, it will last forever.
