Artist bio

I am a Melbourne artist who shares my passion for the natural world through my expressive abstract paintings. Working with the medium of paint, I draw my inspiration from nature, the colours, motifs and patterns that excite my creative faculty. Painting on canvas and paper I work with organic contours, creating translucent veils of colour that run, pool and bloom, forms that suggest those present in nature’s cycle of growth and change.
I love painting and the process of creating; meditative contrasted with the tension of controlled spontaneity. I enjoy making evocative shapes and patterns, overlapping, manipulating translucent stains of paint that vacillate between the familiar and the unknown. I aim to provide an escape from the real world in my work, a space of contemplation where the ebb and flow of colour and form beckon a dialogue with the viewer. I like to create work that conjures up thoughts and feelings that have a calming influence on the mind of the viewer.

I create art because...

because I have the desire to express my thoughts and imagination.

I am different to most artists because...

I am me, each and every artist has a different way of seeing and connecting to the world around them

When you look at my art, the thing I want you to feel is...

self reflective, calm and a connecion to your own thoughts, memories and imagination

The thing I most want to say to non-artists is...

follow your dreams

I believe art is an important part of our lives because...

Art enriches our life through sensory sensations. Art allows us to envisage that which is not, it is this power that enables us to empathise with others; to travel to other places in our mind.
