I am interested in the way human interference affects our natural landscape and, in turn, how nature takes its effect on these manmade settings. There is a subtle incongruity between the natural and the unnatural, through aspects such as manmade patterns in the landscape, overgrown wasteland containing derelict buildings, or objects that have, or once had a purpose but are now integrated into their natural surroundings.

I want to emphasise these themes through the making of a painting or drawing, by obscuring some objects and defining others and through the use of colour.
