I plot, plan, ponder. Surrounded by a collection of intriguing things and thoughts, fascinated by an object, a face, the intricate, obscure, I paint passionately. The characteristic patterns of my surroundings are observed. Lightly following the footsteps of illustrated natural history documents, I travel as a decorative explorer on a domestic expedition to view the house and garden as an extension of the self. Cross referencing interiors and exteriors, objects are arranged and considered. Design tensions and harmonies are explored, inviting the viewer into a mysterious, intimate space.
