“Light of Your Revelation”, 2017
I painted this as a musing upon things we can feel and sense but are invisible. Sometimes we get glimpses of clarity and whispers of higher knowledge that want to burst through the veil that separates us from something bigger. Like a window into eternity.

“Shimmering Threads” 2016
This painting took several weeks of seclusion, listening to spiritual/worship music, applying layer upon layer.
“Shimmering Threads” has a peace about it and a calmness. My young niece saw it at the same time as me and spoke about the stars and how everything seemed to be much bigger than we imagine…. it is a painting which you can get lost in and see new things.This one reminds me of the heavens, hidden star systems and seeing just a glimpse of things unknown. When I look at this painting it always helps me to feel calm and that there is so much wonder out there to see and experience, which we have the opportunity to explore.

“Inside the Orion Nebula” 2014
This painting took several weeks with many layers to create the glowing, ethereal effect.
It is believed that thousands of new stars are continually being born in the Orion Nebula. I am fascinated by its endlessly powerful, mysterious and raw creativity.
This painting has been bought by a lady who will kindly loan it if invited for exhibition.

“Heavenly Realms”, 2016
My exploration into other dimensions continued with this ambitious piece.
The Apostle Paul encouraged us to not only think about things on earth but to let heaven fill our thoughts. “Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.”
A couple of years ago I bought Heavenly Realms. Initially, it caught my eye because of the bright colours and immediately I knew it was something that belonged in my home. Looking, I can see a being reaching out into the fire but not being consumed by it, more using it for a purpose. I almost envision the Creator at the beginning, creating his vision through darkness and fire without being lost.
But what I really enjoy about this painting is that no matter how many times I Iook at it, something new is revealed. This painting makes me feel that everything is happening as it is supposed to and God has control of everything, no matter how chaotic things might feel.
This is the first nebula painting I did. It’s based on the Orion Nebula, where new stars are being born all the time. I love the idea of all this swirling creative energy and the mysterious, exciting feelings it evokes.
“Journey Through Obscurity” 2014
This is a painting I did with no previous sketches or photographic material. I wanted to challenge myself to channel my intuition and mental energies into something completely unique.
I feel this piece symbolises the stormy seasons we all have to go through in life. There is confusion as we grapple and wrestle with difficult issues or challenges. I felt that this painting was finished when a sense of harmony and balance arose aesthetically.
