Adding colour to your life is my speciality…
In my Brisbane studio I create paintings to evoke memories, decorate homes and offices or just add some colour to your life. My inspiration comes in many forms but the process of how I work creates a common thread through my paintings.
By layering translucent inks, thick bright acrylics and other media I build interest throughout my compositions.
My paintings hang in private collections all over Australia and internationally in the UK, Ireland and New York
Popular Series of Work
I have been producing these paintings for over 20 years and have completed many commissions. A wonderful photographer friend climbed the Manly Water Tower many years ago and photographed Wynnum Manly from a whole new perspective. I could instantly visualise these photos as paintings, simplifying the shapes and colours in my mind. More recently, I obtained new photos providing me with a fresh new look of the same landscape 20 years on. My new series of these paintings are different to my previous hard edge graphic style but they are as popular now as they were then.
My Reef Series is all about my love of Tropical Queensland. I am originally from Cairns in North Queensland so images of the The Great Barrier Reef have always inspired me. To create these paintings I use a mixture of mediums overlaying many layers, illustrating the many overlapping layers of shapes and colours found in these landscapes beneath the sea. These artworks provide a tranquil place to escape to when you have one hanging in your home. It is my hope that my paintings are a constant reminder of what we will be missing if we lose this precious environment.
