Summary

Expressions of what I see and feel about the world around me are captured into abstract naturalism using colour, texture and pattern.  Layer upon layer of mixed media connect moments in time through colour and text.

  • About

    The natural world has always captured my imagination. The rich, red sand of outback Australia, the azure blues of the ocean near where I live, patterns on a tree trunk left behind by peeling bark or the colours of a sunrise playing across the rock faces on the mountains. These inspire me!

    My style? Expressionism through to pure abstract.

    My love of words is sometimes combined into the paint; words of hope and encouragement, dreams remembered and words of love that can't be spoken.

    Layer upon layer of mixed media connect moments in time...captured into colour.
