About

I have a Diploma of Fine Arts . My paintings are mainly Abstract and I have used Charcoal, Acrylic, Gouache, Ink and Oil in my works previously.
I have painted on different textures - wood, canvas, metal and paper.
In my paintings I show shape, form, colour and mark making. I enjoy making collage which I also paint.
My art work is a spontaneous activity with no real preconceived ideas. All my paintings are ready to hang.
My paintings are focussed more on the use of colour as the main factor. Colour in a painting and how it can make you feel when you look a at it, is an important part of my work. When you place a painting on a wall and it lifts the surroundings then I feel it has been successful.

Education

Completed a Diploma Of Fine Arts in 2002 - I have recently started painting again after a 10 year hiatus.

Influences

My artist influences are the colour and patterns of Henri Matisse's paintings, Frank S Gehry's architecture, the use of colour in paintings of the Fauves and the collages of Schwitters .
Everywhere I look in my daily life I see wonderful shape and colour.
Kandinsky said that colour can have a musical and spiritual quality and sometimes you can get two colours together and they just sing.
My passion is painting and collage. I enjoy bold colour in my paintings which can bring life to a room and create a visual and focal point.
