“Nature does not hurry yet everything is accomplished” - Lao Tsu
Our native rainforest and bird life is my continuing source of inspiration. There is such a richness of light, colour and atmosphere to experience, standing quietly in the depths of the bush, especially after a downpour of rain when a wet stillness hangs in the air and all of nature seems poised to issue forth yet again.
The start of my work has always been a most carefully contrived photographic image. But it does not stop there. I have returned to the forest again and again over the years seeking to capture what is there in the forms of nature that can be translated to canvas.
