About

Long walks in the bush inspire me to share depictions of landscape and nature using different paint media. How fantastic it is to capture in a small way the vibrancy, mystery and beauty in our environment. I welcome you to take a journey with me in the outdoors through my artwork.
The watercolour artworks on paper are only available unframed. Oil paintings are on stretched canvas over a pine underframe with finished sides in matte black and wire attached ready to hang. Each artwork is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity and an index record of each work is maintained.

Thank you for taking the time to look through my Bluethumb site.
