and found objects to create colourful yet serene images of coastal
and landscapes, images called from his travels on Malaysia's
Different materials such as
cardboard, tracing paper and other found materials create rich,
textural qualities to best depict expansive fields. He uses the
mist at different times of the day to portray a sense of mythical
awe whilst evoking natural beauty.

and places of contemplation.
