Gold Coast, Australia
My choice of subjects for painting is varied as I explore my creative expression and make use of colour and tonal values.
I have always had a love and appreciation for art, however my career took me in another direction for many years and it wasn’t until my children were at school that I began to paint.
My art knowledge has been gained from attending both workshops and regular classes from several teachers over many years. Each teacher has given me further insights into art and influenced me in varied styles and mediums. I believe this type of learning has given me confidence in approaching me artwork with a creative open mind, letting go of the fear of making mistakes.
Art is my passion and I have an enthusiasm for many styles of art. I like to work with oils, acrylic, watercolours and mixed media. My painting style varies from realism to contemporary, impressionism to abstract, from still life to landscapes and portraits.
I like to use a palette ranging from bright intense colours to softer paler colours. For me, this is a natural process of my ongoing art journey, reflecting my mood and emotions of the present moment.
The subjects I choose for my paintings is expanding as I explore my creative artistic expression, making use of colours, shapes, tonal values, line and textures in an attempt to produce a pleasing composition. When working on an art piece I try to capture the essence of the subject to bring a quality of life into the painting in an attempt to transport the viewer into the subject.
