I love vintage style in a modern way, and in a free style.
My painting are mostly quite intense and emotional. I love vivid, contrast colour combination, splashes and the rough texture of every single stroke . Lots of black and white are used during the process and for finishing.
Most of my inspiration comes from the nature. I enjoy the pure joy of painting wild and free abstract art out of personal emotion using the medium whatever I have in hand. I used to love the texture of different fabric while being a fashion designer, and now I am fascinated by Australian native trees, flowers and birds. The specialty nature of the country is my inspiration as a artist.
Lots of the spark of creation comes from my observation to the native vegetation and animals. I am obsessed with the falling tree leaves in Autumn, different bloom in four seasons, falling feather of a Cacatua, the sounds from a Kookaburra, even the most common flowers as dandelion or a grass seed on the streets has its own inner-strength and its own message to deliver. Painting the nature helps me to be in the moment , enjoy the moment , and definitely a exquisite meditation. You can almost tell from the colour an artist are using for how he/she feels at the moment. Painting is a very good way for an artist to release the emotion in their own unique aesthetics, and colour is my favorite part of the process. After living in a very fast pace city live for over 30 years, I finally realized the faster the world runs, we need to slow down our heart.
In some of my painting, I took reference photo myself than work on it, the most important thing is I would definitely need to be in the place to experience every detail first, remember what was the most impressive thing I want to keep and the feeling that I want to deliver in the painting.
There is another series that I really enjoy painting is the wild abstract botanical series which had been exhibited in Botany - Urban Forest art exhibition at Brunswick street Gallery on February 2017,which is my favorites exhibitions too.
From where I live in Bayswater, there is a big field of forest own by the church right across the street. My usual creating process normally start by a chill walk into the woods, by touching the tall, old trees I feel the texture of the bark , looking and memorize the colours of the current seasons, feeling the sunlight reflect on the trees and grass . I collect whatever I found on the walk as inspiration, normally would be the eucalyptus tree leaves, oak or pine leaves, bird feathers, in autumn I would have fallen acorns, in winters my favorite trees is the cherry blossoms . There's only one rule for my collecting process, never take from the living tree/life, just take what had fallen, and those are the best gift from the nature of the day for me.
The best part of my nature collecting as inspiration is I also get to experiment with all kinds of natural medium out of ordinary brushes sometimes. For example , you are able to create a sharp and clear outline of the splashes by using a straw, paint the fine and smooth flowing line by magpie feather, and my favorite nature brushes would be the leaves of the pine tree, it gives a wild and intensive pattern that cannot be found or be painted by any man-made brushes, I especially love using the pine tree brushes for some of my background layer. I also kept a small block of pine wood that I love using for print making with its tree rings shows on it.
Depends on the experience and the story that nature wants to tell me of that day, I normally minimize the major objects down to 3 , and from the fresh memory of the colour hue in my mind from the walk under the nature sunlight , turning into wild abstract botanical painting.
I want to capture these amazing moment that once touched my heart deeply into a piece of art. The unconditional love and abundance receiving from the nature can be a higher joy than receiving any material reward. It would be wonderful that if the moment I freeze in my art can also let the people who sees them feel the same or can feel a moment of calm from it. That's my goal to achieve, and that's what I want to share in my painting.
