Artist's statement:

"I have lived my life growing up in the beautiful surrounds of Cape Town, and have spent many hours walking the mountains. These works are a very personal reflection of the beauty and majesty of the natural landscape of Cape Town. Every time I look at the mountain it is different, a change of weather, different cloud patterns and change of shifting light. Each view is ephemeral and transient - and that is the essence of what I wish to capture through images of landscape".
