Working loosely within the genre of landscape painting, I explore my relationship with the natural world. I have been trying to create an artistic process that necessitates spending time outside, something vital to my general wellbeing. Starting from my experiences outside, my observations playfully interact with experimentation and the formal act of painting. I am interested in a painting that becomes an image of the process of its creation; exploring tension between illusionistic realism, gesture and the materiality of paint. I aim for a balance that works as a painting and relates to the chaos and balance that is omnipresent in the dense layered flora of the Northwest landscape.
