Perth, Western Australia
My style can vary dramatically as I paint according to my feelings, experiences and even the materials I decide to work with. I like to experiment with new styles, techniques, genres and art movements. I have a real love for abstract mixed media art especially the freedom it gives you. I also enjoy the artistic composition, technique, texture, juxtaposition, symbolism that collage paintings offer the viewer. My paintings are an artistic map of new ideas and images to explore and appreciate.
I have always been passionate about art. I studied art throughout my schooling years focusing on Art History and Print Making.
I use a variety of mediums such as acrylics, watercolours, oil pastels, ink, pencil, crayons, enamel and collage. I use ephemera (paper items) such as vintage music sheets, stamps, maps, letters, postcards, recycled papers, memorabilia and various printed items in my artwork. I am influenced by Miro, Rauschenberg, Kandinsky, Pollock, Kusama, Cezanne, Mondrian, Hundertwasser, de Kooning and Höch.
Art is so important in your life as it can create wonderful feelings such as serenity, calm, happiness, and confidence. Art can also evoke positive energy and wonderful memories. Even the colours used in an art piece can create different moods and healing. For example, yellow is connected to self-confidence, self-esteem and alertness and blue is linked with wisdom, calm and reflection. I want the art buyer to be intrigued by my art and to discover new images, feelings and connections.
Enjoy my art in your home and workplace.
