I have enjoyed art ever since I can remember, giving drawings away as a gift to family and friends was something I have done from a young age. I have studied on and off throughout my life, but I am mainly self-taught. Since moving to Margaret River in 2010 I have taken the time to harness my skills.
My art style has evolved over the years. Starting with charcoal I mark the canvas with shapes of the rocks and coastline until the drawing appears complete. I then add the colour with highly pigmented ink acrylics. Using the wet surface of the canvas I can manipulate the colours to blend and create its own movement and shape.
My works are significant to the surrounding landscapes I have seen through my life or moments that relate to a feeling of being free and alive. Staying present in the moment is difficult to maintain at times and I like to focus on the important things in life - looking after yourself mentally and physically.
“I will forever be searching for a new way to express my feelings, memories and the way I see the world through art”
