While kitesurfing, I sustained a traumatic brain injury. Weeks after suffering searing pain, visual distortions and extreme fatigue, I found myself drawn to oil paintings. The practice of painting soothed my headaches and brought some relief. Thousands of hours later, I have developed a style that is intended to provide the same sense of escape for viewers. These large scale paintings depict imagined lost islands, far off mountains, and the endless changing sea and skyscapes that I love. They provide a radical act of escapism: a return to nature. I have expanded this art work to include structural floral pieces that are intended to inspire, surprise and evoke new ideas.
