"I love the Natural World.
The rich, red sand of outback Australia, the azure blues of the ocean near where I live, patterns on a tree trunk left behind by peeling bark or the colours of a sunrise on the mountain rock faces.
These are what inspire me to paint.
My style? Expressionism through to pure abstract.
I use Mixed Media in rich, luscious layers of colour and texture to create original artworks that express what I see and feel.
I hope to communicate a Place, a Time, a Memory." Artist's Statement.
