About

I have a Diploma of Fine Arts . My paintings are 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.
I have recently been part of an exhibition with three Illawarra artists. For this exhibition my paintings had more of a structured composition with angles and straight lines. I usually paint with a much more free flowing technique. I enjoyed the angles and more of a sculptural composition of the paintings that I did and these paintings focussed more on the use of colour as the main factor in the painting. The use of colour 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.

Influences

My artist influences are the colour and patterns of Henri Matisse's paintings, the shape of Frank S Gehry's architecture, the use of colour in paintings of the Fauves and the collages of Schwitters . Archipenko sculptures have wonderful defined shape. 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.
