About

Growing up in Brewarrina, my artwork is influenced by many childhood memories of the harsh beauty of the Australian outback.
Now living on the Central Coast, I find inspiration in the movement of tidal waters and the steady passing of time and the seasons.
I am a "Self Directed " artist, learning from Art Classes, TAFE And Workshops, studying other Artwork, reading many, many books but often preferring to work alone in the peace of my studio.
The subjects vary from week to week but the overriding force involves colour. I love colour, it's interaction on the page, it's subtlety, boldness, restful ness and cheekiness.
My dreams are often in colour, about colour.
Hovering between realism and abstraction, trying to depict the extraordinary in the ordinary, my chosen medium suits my personality and hums with a creative energy of its own.
The Inks are acid free, fast drying, transparent and spirit based.
Each painting is worked with a combination of small brush strokes and an interplay of ink running across the surface.
Most of my new work is on triple primed MDF, finished with 3 coats of Archival UV Resistant Spray and framed by a professional framer.
After many years of acrylic and pastel work, the use of Inks and pen allow me to capture movement and colour and hopefully create a magical and memorable experience
Most works can be sent professionally framed in a white wood, wide mat and a Perspex frame as Bluethumb prefers not to courier glass.
PS they look stunning in this frame.
My paintings are hanging in private collections throughout Australia , New Zealand, UK and USA.
