I love to paint in oils, but also enjoy painting with acrylics and watercolours. My favourite subject is the sea.
I am inspired by nature and how light and shadow affects the landscape and water.
I have recently relocated to Yamba where there is so much coastal beauty to inspire my seascapes!
To my collectors and those interested in my artworks:
I am now back in my studio and ready to post out my artworks should you wish to purchase one!
Thank you for your patience!
I have always loved to paint and I won several art competitions in my early school years.
My favourite subjects are seascapes, landscapes and figures in the landscape, but I enjoy painting any subject.
My artistic goal is to express the light, colour and mood of my chosen subject and to connect with the viewer. I love to paint themes that bring
feelings of peace and tranquillity, in contrast to the busyness of our everyday lives.
I prefer oil paint for its rich texture and vibrant colours and I continue to improve my skills by attending workshops with my favourite tutors.
I completed my Certificate IV in Visual Arts at Bremer TAFE in 2010.
I have previously won first prize at Brookfield Show and Wooli Art Show, and Highly Commended at Brookfield Show and Ipswich Show.
Each year I enter art shows to keep challenging myself to create beautiful paintings that people can enjoy.
I like the challenge of creating something beautiful out of something ordinary, and to create artworks that express my love of the natural environment.
My most recent group exhibition was in July 2020 at Richard Randall Studio, Mt Coot-tha, Brisbane with the Western Suburbs Painting Group. Despite rainy weather attendance was good and we had lots of sales. I was very happy to sell three seascapes.
Having recently moved to Yamba, NSW, there is plenty of coastal inspiration for my art.
