“When the spirit does not work with the hand, there is no art”
- Leonardo Da Vinci 

Painting is the means to which I enter deep within myself and nourish a source of creative expression. Movement, light and colour reveal my passion for sharing the profound beauty and sacredness of life, with its complexity, mystery and hidden truths. The addition of people into my images encourage a sense of pilgrimage. The human condition seeking, searching and hungering for deeper relationships with creation, creator and each another.

Layer upon layer my paintings emerge. Often my images will become quite dark, upon which I then wash sections of paint away in order to reveal portions of light within the initial layers. As leonard Cohen said “There is a crack in everything, that is how the light gets in”

A desire for my art is that it may represent light entering creation, for luminosity within creation to be seen with new eyes, and for the spirit of God to be fully within and throughout all of existence.
