About

Hello and Welcome. 

Thank you for your interest in my art. I’m so glad you’re here. 

Memory, Colour, Connection. These are the spheres which I draw upon when creating my art. 

I am an Australian expressionist artist painting the natural world around me. I portray my experience and interactions with the landscape through my interpretation of colour, feelings and connection with the environment. Expressionism is an art form which often romanticises the subject through use of bold colours and formations; drawing on emotion and memory. 

I also love to paint in the abstract expressionist style through my spontaneous and improvised response to refracted light on the landscape. My bokeh landscape paintings reveal my natural view of the world - instead of how I see when looking through my glasses. For me, these paintings are a form of relaxation, where I relax my sharpened view of the world and paint what is natural to me.

I am mostly self-taught, having been driven to draw and paint since childhood and gaining knowledge and skills through daily practise, workshops and short courses and my local arts community. 

I have predominately been a watercolourist for many years before taking up oil painting in 2020. The rich texture and vibrancy of oils has extended my art practice, freeing me to paint in a deeply visceral state. Watercolour and oils are the yin and yang of my deep sense of creativity and I love to paint and explore with both mediums. 

I paint with brilliant colour, gestural marks, sweeping lines and textural formations. I particularly love to paint the Southern Highlands of Queensland and Northern New South Wales – these areas being within hours from my home; and which I regularly visit on day trips or holidays with my family. I am fortunate to live close to forest, plains and sea, all of which inspire me to paint. I have recently looked closer to home for inspiration, searching for beauty and tranquillity in the quiet pockets of suburbia. 

I hope that my art resonates with your own memories and connections to this beautiful world. 

I am always happy to answer any questions about my art and if you have any queries please get in touch.
