I am fascinated with the imagery of undersea, under-the-microscope and outer-space and the curious ways they seem related.  I'm looking at the macro and the micro in various atmospheres.


These paintings often read in different ways to diffferent viewers, and I like that complexity. We all bring our interests and experiences when we see artwork, so the skin-diver might see fish under water, the biologist can see micro-organisms from a pond and the astronomer sees a galaxy in space.
