As an architect, I am concerned with finding a balance between space, structure and aesthetics, the traditional tenets of “commodity, firmness and delight” that we take for granted in the buildings that serve us and enrich our daily lives.
As an artist, I am fascinated by similar aspects of the natural and man-made world – the depiction of volumes, forms and surfaces, textures and colour in ways that describe the fundamental essence of our environment and capture the effects of light.
I am inspired by the natural beauty of the West Coast, seeking to convey the emotional connection I feel with its many facets – water, rock, trees – through the portrayal of its landscape, close up or distant in scale, with or without people present, in my preferred medium of acrylic paint on canvas.
