I am a Watercolour Artist who is constantly striving to capture the ethereal, ever changing beauty of the natural world.
I find myself continually influenced by pattern, especially negative spaces and light.
I see subjects, often in overlooked spaces. I attempt to move away from a representational approach, in order to allow the subjects to move, and to keep a feeling of transient change.
