The fragile beauty and mystery of the natural world has always captivated my imagination and greatly influenced my work. I am deeply drawn to its rich textures, soft earthy tones, organic shapes, and intricate patterns. The way colours interact with each other and create a feeling of harmony.
I enjoy the process of working and experimenting with an array of mediums, such as encaustic wax, oil pastel, ink and gold leaf, Each has their own unique qualities and add interest and complexity to the work. I work intuitively allowing the process to naturally develop and to tell its own story. Layers are gradually built up to give the illusion of depth, then sanded and rubbed back to create a weathered appearance that evokes the influence of time.
Many hours are spent in my studio, which is situated on our rural property on the Mornington Peninsula. Surrounded by natural bushland and garden, It is here where I find an endless supply of ideas and inspiration.
Through my painting, I aim to create timeless works that convey a sense of harmony, as well as intrigue and sensitivity to the subject.
