A series of paintings celebrating the rich detail, texture and pattern found in natural habitats. I am interested in how these elements combine to make an aesthetic unique to each ecosystem. Despite the complexity and abundance, we tend to experience a sense of calm and restoration in such places; they seem to offer space for reflection. Natural colours found in the reserves help to unify the busy mark making and build the character and narrative, capturing the emotional quality we experience when connecting with nature; whether a sense of unwinding, curiosity or energy. Scumbled layers are built up to reveal depth and texture, movement and light.
