Artist Statement

My current artistic practice seeks to convey the abstract qualities of contemporary landscape through paint and collage materials. Rather than beginning with a specific subject matter in mind, my working methods involve walking and making observations through sketching. The paintings have elements of the surreal similar to that of Paul Nash. The second strand of my work looks at the relation between traditional landscape painting and satellite imagery; the landscapes in the first triptych are depicted from an aerial viewpoint. I view my paintings both as part of the tradition of landscape painting and as functioning maps.
