Description

Rockpools and Reefs Series
My current series, “Rockpools and Reefs” is an abstract reflection of the earths body of water and the wonder which lays beneath the surface. Like life, beauty is deeper than what you initially see. I have a memory of a very vibrant Great Barrier Reef experience as an 8 year old child and the colours will forever remain in my memory. This drives the vibrant colour selection for the body of work you see before you.

Painting is a constant distraction in my world and there is stream of thoughts and images flowing throughout my mind. Particular in relation to water, beaches, rockpools and the Great Barrier Reef. This busy mind of mine means that there are many pieces on the go at any one time, enabling layers to form. There is a lack of rigidity in my artistic process. It is more a creative flow that happens. I am a colour outside the lines kind of girl, which is where my style comes from and enables me to embrace imperfection into my work.

As the colours flow together like water and reefs forming, the viewer is left witness the fluid and playfulness of the pieces.
