The idealized, almost illusory nature of my landscape paintings are representational of vibrant, fictional places. I draw from found images of 'dream' destinations seen in holiday advertisements from magazines and online. The aim is to create what at first seem to be conventional, often stereotypical landscape paintings, but which, on closer inspection, are infused with the aura of magic realism. This juxtaposition echoes our desires to escape to an 'Otherworld' in a time of social, ecological and political instability.
