Some paintings have planned narratives, while others are painted more intuitively. When produced either way, the completed paintings have no linear read, but suggest a sort of subliminal landscape through the incorporation of both the representational and the ambiguous.

Thematically, I reference the images and ornate patterns found in nature and contrast these organic forms with the inorganic man‐made forms that score the landscape. My paintings are reflective of the issues that surround the production, transportation and consumption of various resources, some being more obscure than others. The paintings with their warm colour palette appear light‐hearted, innocent and beautiful at first. However, there is an underlying chaos and acidity ‐‐ reflective of the rise in global temperatures as well as people's willingness, but also their resistance to change.
