Broome , WA
I have lived in the remote Kimberley for close to 30 years. I sell my art from my studio Gallery in Broome, online and through gallery representation. Freight is free Australia wide.

The Kimberley…….. colour, isolation, extremes, this is the country my soul resonates with.
As a landscape artist I reconnect with country frequently in order to create.
I walk her coast, float in the azure waters, climb layers of ancient, warm, red rock and sleep in a swag under the gaze of a million stars.
I aim to show the value of time spent in the natural world to the human spirit. I seek to ignite a memory for those who have been here before or tweak the desire to travel for those yet to walk the pindan earth.
I work in oil paint on both canvas and aluminium panels.
The aluminium offers a point of difference, used in Europe for many years, I am one of the only artists in Australia who works on these purpose built panels. Totally archival, these paintings stand out in a sea of canvas works. The use of negative space and lighting allows the shimmering sub-straight to glow through giving the impression the works are lit from within. difficult to photograph, they need to be experienced.
When working the land, I work wet into wet, scratching though the paint to give another dimension to the natural elements and allowing flow with paint pours. At sea I will lay glazes to give depth of the ocean and an optical mix of colour. I also enjoy the change of pace when working with oils on Aluminium, I love to let paint slide and the silver of the Ali to glow through.
Painting is a time of stillness of mind for me; the music is loud and as I stand at the easel the world around me drops away and the meditative process begins.
