La Macina di San Cresci



“Artists are interesting creatures. We can be obsessive, dedicated, spirited and single minded in our pursuit for that perfect realisation of our art. We tend to be outsiders and are often that square peg in the round hole, so when you find an oasis like San Cresci you hold on tight -- for it’s that sense of belonging which welcomes you.”

Nature has always been a really important source of inspiration for my work. The combination of the idyllic countryside, little villages, ancient ruins and modern architecture makes Tuscany the ideal place for me to work. I work with a combination of photos and drawing to create collages juxtaposing the ancient and the modern, nature and architecture.
Another very important aspect of my work is colour. This is a consequence of both my early formative period as an artist in the Netherlands, with its history of important painters famous for their use of color, and development as an artist inspired by the vibrant colors and light of Australia and Europe
