Curated by Art on a Postcard
I find inspiration almost anywhere but particularly in nature. Whether it’s the power of the sea, the wind through a grove of bamboo, sunlight through a canopy, the detail and structure of a leaf... There’s so much beauty around us, both the big views and the details, I’m in awe of it. I try to capture the mood, the wonder, the feeling of being there, the elements perhaps less visible with a passing glance.
I have always loved design, creating things, and sometimes work collaboratively to solve a design brief for artwork specific to a project. Mostly though I work alone inspired by the beauty in nature, often with my own creative enquiries: How to express the rain? or the wind as it blows sand along a sea drenched beach... as it makes botanical shadows dance on a wall. How to express the movement of a wave, or the still timeless eternity of a mountain. There’s inspiration everywhere.
