I am a full time artist working from my home studio on the beautiful Sunshine Coast hinterland of Queensland.
Although my previous work life was finance/number based my artwork is perhaps surprisingly far more organic. Inspired by the natural sub-tropical bush where I live, my semi abstract artworks are a response to the positive and the negative shapes, the textures, lines, shadows and reflections I see around me.
I am an intuitive painter who loves the luscious properties of paint and the expressive marks I can make not just with a brush but with whatever is at hand. My artworks are characterised by the many layers as I explore the idea of looking through, into and between the objects within each piece.
I love colour and try to push the boundaries to create artwork that is striking from a distance but provides so much more when you get in close.
