Redcliffe Peninsula Qld
Creating art is communication.
Being a thrill seeker I first capture people’s emotions through gestural drawing. Then I transpose their moment on paper using watercolour and mix-media.
What I like about my work is the interplay of watercolour’s fluidity and because I create individual grounds to fit the subject it is like an improvisation of effects making the work free, loose and fresh.
My artworks allow viewers the intimacy of the self and the expression of their experiences. Viewer’s interpretation of my art is as valid as mine because my work is about them and me being part of them.
My artworks are about humanity.

Having been a sculptor in stone, bronze, and ceramic and realising the limitations of ageing I made the plunge and redirected my talent and art expression into painting. After moving to the Redcliffe peninsula I started to work closely with a mentor and started to paint daily. I then resumed quickly my art practice. I revived my love for paper and watercolour and combined with my passion for working in mix-media…
My academic formation and memory kicked in and I have rapidly developed my painting style based on my gestural drawings and a few tricks of my own namely grounds. As I have been drawing since age 15 my line and mark are easily recognisable through time it is my graphic signature and people often mention recognising my works.
I have exhibited all over the world and I have created five major body of works. Creating a new body of works implies: research on a theme, work realistion and exhibition. Besides these major solo exhibitions, I have participated in numerous group exhibitions all over the world where I lived and worked.
As an anthropologist my art is about life our lives. Long time life observer I am keen on the story the bodies tell me which I then express visually. I am passionate about movement and I can bring to life on paper the human form in 30 seconds and one movement. My drawings are collected all over the world.
The works are of the neo-expressionism style. Modern Art
