Nature has never been shy of offering me inspiration. Whether it be in humid forests, wetlands or windy mountains crowned with mist, I search for the rare and often overlooked species of indigenous and African orchids. The reward lies in experiencing their sensual beauty and qualities in situ, and allowing a torrent of emotion and language to journey me into creating more than a mere presentation. Watercolour and copper etching are my preferred mediums for capturing these specimens and thereby securing their visual existence.
