The Light Within
All my life I have been fascinated by the Light Within, that essential essence that exists under the surface of our everyday reality. It is this light that I seek to capture in my paintings.
Every painting starts as a leap of faith. I invite the light into my garden studio and allow it to unfold and express itself in its own unique way. Sometimes I have a glimpse of where this will take me and other times I don’t. I simply allow the paint brush to flow and undulate across the canvas in a fluid and organic way.
Winter Solstice is inspired by the light, the colours and the natural beauty of the Noosa region of Australia. What I love most about Noosa is the interplay of light. From the oceans to the clouds, to the river estuaries and the hinterland, this canvas unfolds before me every day and finds expression in my paintings.
