Based in the beautiful Adelaide Hills in South Australia, I have always been fascinated by nature. A combination of both natural and urban worlds form the inspiration for much of my work, portraying a rich and vivid inner world.
Painting is a journey of self discovery and introspection, and as I layer paint, I find more layers of self are revealed. Gestural marks evolve, layered, giving the work an almost industrial tactile texture. My fascination for movement, shadows, vibrant colour, and the quality of light are evident.
As a child, I spent time studying at the Honolulu Academy of Art. Later on, back in South Australia, I studied at the Hyde Park School of Art & Design, the Adelaide Central School of Art, and UniSA. Recently, I have attended Nicholas Wilton’s Art2Life ‘Creative Visionary Program’, and Louise Fletcher’s ‘Find Your Joy’ program.
Inspired by nature and the urban landscape, my work is constantly evolving; balancing colour, value, subtlety, and boldness, endevouring to impart a feeling of resilience and vulnerability.
