Profile

“Throughout my years of painting, capturing the pure essence of a subject has always provided a passion for me.

My life is my canvas and I am empowered by Pastels, Acrylics and Oils as my mediums in the process of that capture.

I draw with Pastels for their luscious textural qualities and their freedom to express emotion. The quality of the pigment allows for a longevity that can be appreciated for years to come.

I paint in Acrylics and Oils to enjoy the slow building of layers and textures, on large canvases, inspiring me to construct scenes that come alive.

Having long felt a connection to the earth and the ocean it is no surprise that most of my work is inspired by landscapes and seascapes.

I paint forests where I have meandered through the dense undergrowth, with the breeze whispering amongst the tree tops; and I paint oceans for their ever-changing colours, wave formations and tidal flows, and the beautiful cloud formations overhead.

With a camera or a sketchpad always within reach, I am able to capture distinctive locations and scenes; each one an opportunity to create that special moment in another piece of work, at another time, in the peaceful atmosphere of my studio.

My art has been shown in exhibitions in Perth and regional locations within Western Australia, and I have been fortunate to have sold both commissioned and non-commissioned works within Australia and overseas.”
