About

I am a multi award winning artist based on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland and I paint small and large scale abstracts based on memories of objects, shapes, colours, of everything that I have seen. This can be a landscape from twenty years ago to a blend of colours in the background of a photograph I saw today.
I love to work with freedom with acrylics and then the top layers of the work I use oil paint glazes to create depths of tone and colour.
I have been a part of over fifty exhibitions, solo and group, since 1996 and love to paint every single day. My art influences are Agnes Martin, David Hockney, Howard Hodgkin, Grayson Perry and Paul Klee.
I just love/have to paint.
