About

I am a professional artist based in the Yarra Valley area of Melbourne.

Artist Statement

My goal is to create artworks that are visually beautiful, calming and organic. My paintings are highly decorative, however I feel they also serve as a reflection of the beauty and complexity that nature provides. I like to create art for real people to go into real homes that are a visual feast for the eyes and will be enjoyed for generations to come.

I am primarily inspired by the natural tangle of vegetation that can be found everywhere near my home in the Yarra Valley. My paintings are both a direct reflection of my surroundings and an imaginary world – a secret garden that exists in my mind. A whimsical place that I can go to escape and be lost within.

I begin with a combination of splashes, bleeds and runs in different colours that I then combine with finer details of foliage. I use repetition of brush strokes and natural motifs to create a consistent rhythm within the painting, which helps to create order in the chaos of colour. The contrast between the broad strokes and fine details creates texture and depth in the pieces.

My colour palate is governed by my mood and the general feeling I want to create within each painting. I generally work with analogous colours combinations because I feel they best reflect the natural harmony of nature, the subtle warm or cool changes of the seasons and foliage provide endless inspiration. However, I am not afraid of colour and I often experiment with combinations that are not usually traditionally associated with nature and landscapes.
