"I take my inspiration from connecting with the energetic world within nature. It is a world which I perceive as a subtle inter-connective intelligence which speaks to me in feelings. I am not referring to emotional states like happiness, although I may be feeling any number of emotions at the time. I am referring to a feeling which is centred within the heart and radiates, is expansive to the degree that it connects with this nature energy and becomes one. It is the web of consciousness that connects all things and exists within and outside everything in existence. This, above all else is what I am painting, what I am inspired to convey, whether it is landscape, abstract or some other visual painting."
