During an intensely deep, challenging period, when I felt stuck and uncommunicative I found Gregory Crewsdon. The dark slightly macabre romantic undertone of his work psychologically challenged me. I began to question the message that I wanted to articulate and how I would achieve that. It was a moving experience- it pulled me out of the space that I was in. In the months that followed I found the voice for my first body of work. This is an on going project in which I want to shed light on the beauty and alien like qualities of which nature gives us a reason to fight for and protect the future of our planet. I wish you to navigate this theme through an exploratory lens of mystery, wonder and appreciation, as I have. I want my audience to fall into my landscapes and leave their worries behind, I present to you Nocturnal Forest.
