I am addicted to painting, have a need to paint, and have a duty to display my work to the world. I see the world and I paint it.
I create acrylic and mixed media abstracts, semi-abstracts, and contemporary paintings based on observation of the world around me. My works are bold and expressive. I predominately base my work on the present landscape, landscapes observed while travelling, still life set ups and still life in its’ existing environment. I paint loosely from reference photos and memory. I also occasionally sketch small works on site and may reproduce a larger more abstract version in the studio. My works contain colour relationships, impasto texture, movement, geometry and layers. I see the world and I paint it.
I have been painting consistently with my local art group since around 2008 under the guidance of many tutors. I also attend multiple weekly tutored classes and full day workshops and I am continuously learning and thinking of new ideas. In 2019 I completed studying Certificate III in Visual Arts. Thanks for checking out my art – I love putting it out there.
