Artist's Statement

”My landscapes often centre around the drama played out in nature, a dark
cloud threatens, a sudden burst of sunlight, a moody sky against snow covered
fields. These are the times when nature displays her more provocative side;
probably for just a few seconds; these often fleeting moments I have tried to
capture in my images”.
