Artist Statement

I am a visual artist focusing on various themes from astronomical art to animals and landscapes. I create drawings and paintings, working mainly in pastels, pencil, as well as oil and acrylic paints. 

 

In order to portray subjects of Earth/space landscapes and astronomical scenes accurately, I spend time researching physics and astronomy, and looking at NASA images. I aim to create scientifically accurate imagery, while allowing for imaginative and creative landscapes. After making studies of the existing images we have of the stars, moon and nearby planets, I can then use these to imagine alien landscapes which could, potentially,  physically exist.
