As an artist, I work to develop paintings that speak to both me and others about the purity in nature. Part of my process before I begin painting is to observe and study the natural elements. I want to internalise the uniformity found in an alpine forest, the movement of billowing clouds, and the depth of colour in ocean currents. I do not want to capture the image with my brushes; rather, with a minimal selection of materials, I aim to capture the essence, simplicity, and purity of the natural world. My ink washes hold a certain visual presence which acts as an invitation to engage, to feel, to explore how the 'pure' resides within us.
