"I see my work as a tribute to the natural world, an examination of the conspicuous, the beautiful and the not so. My goal is to create unique art in unusual and remote, hard to reach places.
Rather than carefully stepping around an object and thinking what it might be, I focus on what it is. My process forces me to connect intimately with nature. I use its fleeting light and deep shadows to uproot thought processes from their private existence and arouse curiosity and intrigue that stimulate visual imagination.
Included in my work is a black and white limited edition of African landscapes. Black and white adds a timeless and authentic quality to the image, emphasizing deep tones that are fundamental to my work. I use rich blacks to portray the saturated emotions that brought me to the place and seek to interpret values that resonate with my own vision.
Images in my Nature Art series are named using traditional African Zulu maiden names. My father was born and raised in Kwazulu-Natal, home of the Zulu nation. It is fitting that I pay tribute to him and my natural heritage that has greatly influenced my work."
