Sold and Commissioned
Available Originals and Prints
I reside in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia and I am largely self taught and enjoy painting a variety of subjects using different mediums. I have only recently begun to share my work and have sold several originals overseas and within Australia. I am an emerging artist having generated local and international interest in my art. In addition, I have recently won several art awards in international competitions and been placed in the top 15 artists for several of my paintings. In the past year I have also undertaken short oil painting courses to learn the traditional techniques of oil painting.
I paint fine art in floral, landscapes, seascapes, still life, wildlife and portrait work. I have been painting and drawing most of my life. I enjoy depicting the beauty and vibrancy in nature and life.
I like to use my imagination to compose a painting. I enjoy looking closely within a garden or scene to see the inherent beauty in a small section. I, as a child, would often go exploring in the countryside and loved coming across streams and forest areas that appeared undiscovered. Secret beautiful worlds that exist but which are often missed to our eye. I try to create or capture these places. I also like to make the audience look even more closely to see there is often still more to see if one only takes the time to look. I also use light to subtly bring these hidden subjects within the painting to the viewer's attention. I want the viewer to feel the joy and excitement of seeing a beautiful world that they are only privileged to see. Some have said my work makes them feel joyful and this is what I have hoped to express through my paintings.
