The intricate patterns on the water surface intrigue me – especially how they can convey both movement and stillness. In some cases, it seems as if these reflections create an alternate reality to what we see on land or in the sky. However, beneath the surface, there is a psychological element to why I am drawn to paint water. For me, water represents life, as we cannot survive without it, and it literally flows through all of us. It is a constant that connects us to each other. I find painting the intricate reflection patterns to be a meditative and sometimes, cathartic process. I focus on highlighting the beauty of the abstract composition nature provides, while conjuring the almost musical rhythm of the water and its restorative properties.
