I create acrylic and mixed media abstracts, semi-abstracts, and contemporary paintings based on observation of the world around me. My works are bold and expressive. I predominately base my work on the present landscape and landscapes observed while travelling. I sometimes paint loosely from reference photos or memory. Other times I let the the paint and marks on the canvas guide me. My works explore colour relationships, impasto texture, movement, shapes and layers. I see the world and I paint it.
I have been painting consistently with my local art group since around 2008 under the guidance of many tutors. I also attend multiple weekly tutored classes and full day workshops and I am continuously learning and thinking of new ideas. In 2019 I completed a Certificate III in Visual Arts.
Take a look, take a 2nd look and take a longer look - I love putting my work out there.
