“My interest in the Australian landscape is very present in my work. Being surrounded by the natural world evokes not only visual satisfaction but a deep emotional connection. Looking at a scape and understanding the way it entwines habitats and existence. Feelings of searching, longing and trying to comprehend who and what we are comes to mind”.
