As an artist, I value the natural world around me. My artistic practice focuses on merging the natural world with the surreal essence of dreams. I gather inspiration from the colours found in ecological biospheres, primarily those found in deserts and tropical rainforests in South America and Asia. Many of the colours that I use are exaggerations of the initial palette found in nature. I find this exaggeration of colour adds brightness to my work and formulates surrealism. I also find inspiration in the patterns naturally formed in plants, animals, and shells. While I find the colours, patterns, and forms of nature enchanting, I also add unrealistic shapes, objects, and colours to my work. I find that the drama and mystery that forms out of dreams is mesmerizing and adds a sense of fantasy and intrigue into my practice, which is unexpected, yet maintains a sense of naturalism. This combination of nature with surrealism is a fundamental aspect of my art practice. My art often aims to blend natural forms with mesmerizing fantasy to create organic environments that are unrealistic and unexpected. I believe this combination of nature with illusion adds a quality of storytelling and produces otherworldly scenes that resonate in a modern world. As an artist, I aim to push the boundaries of the perception of the natural world.
