About

Now living in Sydney, I grew up next to a vast swathe of untouched bush in a house overlooking a wide river beneath a huge sky. It's no surprise that landscape, water and sky are my inspiration. Their colours, variablility and endurance never cease to fascinate. I investigate many aspects of landscape - beauty, fragility, robustness, transience, sparseness, lushness. The green and the brown and red and blue of it. I enjoy working across all mediums and surfaces, and seem to have periods of time when one is a favourite, then another. For me making art is as much about thinking as doing - solving the challenge of a colour or tonal transition can be as much an intellectual exercise as instinctive process. I love that point in a painting where you think oh no, this isn't going to work, but you press on and manage to resolve the challenges.
I'm striving always to discover new ways to see and express my responses to the world around me, and I think everything you experiencet influences you in some way. I want to create artworks that become like old friends, that resonate and speak to personal experience and emotion.
