‘I am a landscape artist with a fascination for mathematics and science. These two may appear incompatible, but in fact they are different pathways toward the same thing – a better understanding of the natural world. Mathematics and science describe the physical laws that govern nature; drawing nature helps understand how the world works.
In drawing a plant, for instance, an artist subconsciously notices how the pointed leaves help channel water to the drip line, the way the shadows of the foliage shelter the roots from the sun, and the way the dead leaves mulch the ground beneath the plant.
Studying science, as well as drawing and painting has given me a deeper appreciation of the natural world; a world which I try to celebrate in my paintings.
