This painting is another homage to the romanticism in the art , music and writing of the 1800s…
The belief that man and nature are inextricably bound together…an interpretation of the nature that is almost mystical… trees in the landscape stand mute…indistinct amorphous shapes, fog, distance, a loss of self, luminousity, night over day and a general feeling of nostalgia pervades art during the era…
I say pay homage, because I don’t want to be slavish…we live in different times and our influences are different, however it is because of those very times that we live in that I feel that we must again become romanticized…we have become hard and cruel..it’s time to find ourselves again

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..
