If I am not in my studio creating, I am in the car driving around allowing anything and everything to capture my passion for art. I get a lot of inspiration for my artwork through my photography. Sometimes it is from what I captured, and others it is just from the journey of looking. You can often find me walking along the beach boxes and marinas here on the Mornington Peninsula of Victoria. I especially love walking around in marina storage lots, where I find abandoned, and dis-guarded boats, because I find art. I find things that move me to create in the studio. The pattern peeling paint creates, the vibrant hue of orange from rust, the different shades of green which grow around a slow leak, the texture and look of weathered wood, and the amazing colours that have changed hands over time, all come together to create an inspiring palette for this artist.
