My main personal project for the last few years has been the Travel Symphony series. As with the melodies and movements in a symphony, I’ve combined many scenes into each elaborate composition, to form connections and juxtapositions, and reflect the way one memory links with another. In this I have attempted to create a new visual language, a sort of dream landscape, physically impossible, yet capturing a truth about the interweaving nature of memory, experience, and imagination.

If these places captivate you too, I invite you to spend time with these pieces, and return over time, as you might with a novel, or music, or a place you’ve loved and longed to see again. And if you like it enough, I promise it makes a vast difference to own it in a larger and permanent format, and also helps me to keep traveling and bringing you these paintings! You can get each as an inexpensive poster print, a full-size fine art print, or even a hand-worked, individualized canvas painting. At 48” wide, (36” as a poster,) this is an ideal wall decoration, and a great gift for the history lover or wanderer in your life. As ever, please feel free to reach out, and thank you to everyone who shares and enjoys!
