Artwork Description

My childhood was spent in Pittwater, in the bays and on Scotland Island. I returned as an adult to bring my own child up there and discovered it is not so easy to go back in time. I painted the land and seascape of my childhood, sent in the storm clouds to represent my conflicting feelings about return, and painted myself over the landscape so that I now carry it inside me.
