I am an award winning Brisbane artist. I am known for my very realistic still life and leaf paintings in oil, and my botanical and flower paintings in watercolour. My landscapes in both oil and watercolour, are widely collected. My paintings reflect the world around my, the leaf pictures particularly capture nature at its best, including its ability to reduce (decay) and reuse the precious nutrients to produce an every more stunning natural environment. I paint watercolours that are are a fresh and often detailed reflection of the plants I has seen or the places I have visited. I am passionate about protecting this precious world of ours and caring for the planet which we rely on to survive.
I achieved Fellowship of the Marquetry Society in 2002 and membership of the Society of Botanical Artists in 2004. I have also exhibited many paintings in England including London, and Australia. I have completed a number of commissions and my work is in private collections throughout the UK, and Australia.
I am now represented by the Lethbridge Gallery, Paddington, and am exhibiting in various group shows where I have had a number of successes including winning the Lethbridge 10,000 Small Scale Art Award for 2014, and the EKKA Still Life prize in 2013 and 2015.
