Australian Contemporary Abstract Artist. Specialises in Art for Interiors.
Inspired by nature, texture, colour combinations, patterns and a feeling of peacefulness. I have developed my own fluid process of layering, bring all of these elements together until I feel my work is just right. I am definitely deeply influenced by my study of art therapy, the natural environment, bushlands and the coast.
My paintings are a reflection of my love of colour and nature. I aim to create artwork that is beautiful to look at, feels peaceful, giving people a sense of calm, happiness and colour in their surroundings.
I am very lucky to have my studio situated on Jerrabomberra Mountain with magnificent views the Nations Capital and the Great Australian Snowy Mountains, an extremely peaceful place of natural beauty. I also love spending as much time as possible at the South Coast on weekends, watching the forever changing landscapes, the depth of colour of the ocean waters, and falling light unique to our pristine coastline.
Please contact me to commission an artwork to suit you space. Canvas artwork can rolled and posted anywhere in the world, ready for you to frame!
