As a graphic designer and illustrator, I have never lost my love of line work, colour and composition. Now with a full time career as an oil painter, I draw from this background to create large colourful artworks using bold brushstrokes, thin glazes and thick impasto paint. Continually inspired by the ruggedly beautiful landscape of Western Australia, I sometimes experiment loosely with impression to create semi abstract landscapes, filled with exaggerated colour to create drama and impact. Many of my paintings include water as the vibrancy and fluidity of it�s reflective, transparent surface are a constant source of fascination. My love of animals is evident in my many portrayals of working dogs and farm animals.
