My Bio

Two of my great passions in life are the environment and painting. Through painting I question our role in relation with nature as I seek to spread the awareness that the natural world is threatened both directly by human abuse and indirectly by overpopulation. It is obvious that we – modern society – have become increasingly detached from nature and in order to secure a place for future generations (all species alike) it is vital that we tune ourselves in with the environment and regain greater awareness of our planet and thus take better responsibility of it.

Environmental themes have always dominated my paintings yet a passion for the human form is ever present. I portray nature and our ecosystem as a figure that we can directly relate to and understand expressions. Often the human form is depicted as a substitute where native animals should be, fragile and exposed, or shown symbolic of all humanity and its power over nature. These paintings expose the fragility and grief our Mother Nature endures.

The truth is that we are part of nature as anything else, we are made up of the same elements and our bodies can tune into the same vibrations, but ultimately, WE are nature.


I have the belief that artists and art-making has the potential to point out the importance of environmental integrity – through speaking to emotion and passion for nature. Admiration for nature is intrinsic for all of us, yet it is something we deny or neglect through day-to-day living. As artists, we have the capability to connect with society and direct public attention. My work is intended to inspire change that may help sustain a healthy planet.
