Finding inspiration in minerals, ceramic glazes, metals and semi-precious stones, there's something about the elements that moves me, particularly earth and water. The concept of this latest series was birthed in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Surrounded by boulders, red earth, turquoise and sunbaked sky, I wanted to capture the light, texture and feel of a landscape that was at once rock and sea, equal and opposite sides of a coin. I wanted to paint the peace and the mystery beyond the everyday, there for the looking. I wanted to paint such a world.
