About

I am a Melbourne artist based in the Mornington Peninsula. My art style has changed over the years. My creative art journey continues to evolve. Change is part of life so I flow with this thread. My preferred medium is Acrylic since I discovered its versatility. I love experimenting the many techniques and exploring new ideas, so much more fun than the traditional realistic I started with years ago using oil paint. My art has loosed up from the early days. I enjoy painting contemporary abstract and impressionistic style. Though there are times when I bounce back to realistic traditional just to reanimate its discipline.

Sometimes planing researching my next art piece, sometimes improviso spontaneity makes for a variety of approaches owning my inquisitive nature that implements the endeavour to communicate a pictorial story in a personalized creative way. I will have a go at utilizing different materials with acrylics just
because its freeing and fun finding new ways of expressing what I see and feel in the experience of observing the nature of life. Other mediums I work with are pastel, watercolour, ink, pen, charcoal and pencil. My artwork will often incorporate mixed media/collage.

If there is one observation of my work people have commented about is that of one being drawn into the painting as if walking into the scene. Something I didn't see till recently when I gazed at one of my paintings in an exhibition and had an "A ha" moment as I was drawn into it. I thought at that moment "Amazing that it took me so long to discover this aspect of my own artwork". What a wake up moment that was!
