I have long been drawn to images of water, with its constantly changing depths and surfaces, its mirroring of sky, clouds and wind. I hope to suggest a correspondence between the marks I make on paper and canvas and the myriad elements of nature. I would also like to recreate in my work the feeling

of immediacy and renewal I find in the natural world, and explore the deep connection I sense between my own life, the cyclic aspect of time and the rhythms of nature.
