Using images from nature, such as flowers or scenes, I combine them with stencilled symbols.
These symbols could be from many sources, e.g. William Morris, Hindu, Christian, Islamic or Celtic.
The main aim is to represent an invisible energy, that creative energy we could call Shakti, Holy Ghost, God or Goddess.
As Mother Nature is an obvious, evolved result of this creative force, She is represented in my paintings, often taken from my own photos.
Dots are used regularly to show the motion of this energy.
Nature has its inherent beauty, colour, rhythm and design.
These qualities are all important to me, as they make a natural harmony, which hopefully these paintings convey.
