I am influenced by the things I love; the 18th century, the landscape, the long
blue sky swept with impressionistic clouds and the plump pink of a Boucher cherub's tush.
Delightfully whimsical and bounds of joy. Both bold and subtle, colourful and calm.
I create my unique and original art from my home studio in central Victoria, Australia.
I am deeply inspired by
the natural world and
the way in which it
holds and shapes us.
My work is focused on capturing the essence of landscapes - not as they appear in reality, but as they exist within my own internal landscape.
Through the use of abstracted forms, space, light, and soft, calm colours, I seek to create a visual representation of the landscapes that have impacted me most deeply - whether through lived experiences, observations, or absorbed assimilated knowledge.
My paintings are not a direct representation of any specific place, but rather an amalgamation of various parts of different landscapes that shape the image.
In my work, I strive to reach beyond the physical aspects of the landscape, into the metaphysical, and spiritual aspects. My paintings are an exploration of the emotions, memories, and connections that we form with the beauty and power of the world that surrounds us.
Ultimately, my goal as an artist is to create paintings that inspire a sense of wonder and connection with the magnificence of the world, and that encourage viewers to explore their own internal landscapes and emotional responses to place.
