‘My goal in art is to capture the essence of the moment. Each of my paintings represents a step forward in the application of technique and skill; in the task of translating what I feel as I view a scene, and putting it onto the canvas. Capturing light in my compositions is a constant challenge and I look to my idols – von Guerard, Buvelot, Streeton and Heysen for inspiration.’
