It may have been the spectacular pairing of mid sixties' marvellous Melbourne combined with my parents' unique genetic blend, which brought to life a dynamic instinct in me to project paintings from my inner gallery into the world at large.
Being in my garden inspires me, the panoply of beautiful Australian flora - and the light playing off them, this essense translates directly into the textural nature of my paintings - layering tone on tone, to resemble the grandeur of life.
I think texture and layering is important, especially when works are to be hung in a domestic setting - as this allows for the multiplicity of ways to view them.
They are very tactile pieces, and of course it is possible to visit the gallery and purchase finished pieces ‘off the walls’. Many clients however, prefer me to visit their home to see the colour schemes and lighting already present, so that we both get a feel for how the work will relate to its surroundings. Once we have agreed on the subject matter and the media to be used (oils or acrylics) I have canvasses made to the exact specifications of each client’s requirements.
Thank you and enjoy the website
