My artwork mainly explores regions of the Western Australian landscape hemmed by coastlines and inland waterways, a true to life record of my experiences and love for the scenery that features regularly in my artworks. Wherever my location, I am always fascinated and influenced by the rugged beauty of nature, with naturally occurring complimentary colour harmonies, and attracted to how light plays and creates interesting shapes and shadows.
When creating my oil or acrylic landscape paintings, I consider various paint applications suitable to the subject matter. Sometimes bold gestural brushstrokes, or soft layers of transparent colour to create the impression of depth and space. Recently I have enjoyed building sculptural effects in thick impasto with brush or palette knife.
I work both outdoors En Plein Air and from my studio at Bouvard, south of Mandurah which overlooks the beautiful Peel Harvey Estuary, providing me with daily inspiration.
