About

I am a painter based in Sydney.  I investigate many aspects of landscape - beauty, fragility, robustness, transience, sparseness, lushness. The green and the brown and red and blue of it.  I'm inspired by land, sea and sky, and paint from photographs of my travels- sometimes only a tiny corner - plein air, memories, and imagination. Everything about the world interests me. The patterns in farmed rural land can attract me as much as the vibrant cathedral of an old growth forest, or the twisted twigs and leaves of the bush. I enjoy working across all mediums and surfaces, and seem to have periods of time when one is a favourite, then another. I'm striving always to discover new ways to see and express my responses and I think everything you look at influences you in some way. I want to create artworks that become like old friends, that resonate and speak to personal experience and emotion.
