"Colour in all it's delicious combinations inspires me to paint."
My paintings are created through an exploration of emotion, expression and colour using mark making to create texture and drama in combination with subject to create emotive original artworks. Each painting holds a unique message which I'm compelled to express.
The ability to express myself by laying down pigment onto a surface is pure therapy from real life. To me my paintings are portals… they are windows of sanity which I invite you into.
You'll find my soft pastel and mixed media artworks are inspired by both Australian coastlines and Sth Island New Zealand mountains, as well as people I meet.
In 2019 I was filmed for an Australian television production called 'Colour In Your Life'.
