Winning painting for the Tumut Art Prize 2018...I began painting teacups after being given a number of tea cup settings from my grandmother. Her morning and afternoon teas were quite a memorable feature of my visits with her.

These paintings utilised a variety of different settings with mixtures of tea cups, tea bags, biscuits and cake slices and tablecloths.

I have always loved the use of colour and to this extent I found it challenging to try and replicate the patterns and patinas of bone china, lace, and silver as well as the texture of biscuit and cake with as much realism as I could manage.
Once I felt that I had achieved a degree of realism that satisfied me, I was then able to begin to experiment with adding more colours, tints and hues into the paintings adding vibrancy and vitality to the porcelain, fabrics and shadows.

More recently I have begun to incorporate elements of 'Australiana' into my paintings in order to move away a little from the "English Tea" appearance of my earlier work.

I enjoy the challenges of these paintings, and the complexity and detail involved in each one of these paintings can take me up to 10 weeks to produce.
