Earthspin Series
The connection between art and the cosmos is one that fascinates me.  My imagination has been fired by recent images of earth from the International Space Station.  This painting is one of a series inspired by pre-dawn skies, star streams, ice crystals, fire rainbows and atmospheric optics.  My work is entirely abstract, and from imagination, but while painting, I think of the tiny jewel that is earth, spinning away in the solar system. I am particularly interested in the way space exploration, with its rapid flow of scientific discoveries and celestial imagery inter-relates with mystical thought.

Two Paintings in this series have been shortlisted for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2016.
