I’m a mixed media artist living in Melbourne, Australia.
I love painting landscapes in an abstracted contemporary style in my home studio.
My favourite substrate is wood, mainly for its natural texture and characteristics. I really enjoy sanding back paint on wood panel and then reapplying more layers of colour and waiting to see what will transpire. This process is a silent conversation between myself and the painting appearing before me. It is a give and take process with a dash of intuition. Applying paint and then taking it away, adding texture with many tools (not just paint brushes) and covering it up again - this is the journey for all my pieces. Each of my paintings are a response to my surrounding, they mirror my interpretation through colour, layers and texture.
My paintings are one of a kind, there is only one because the intention of all my creations is to capture a particular moment in time which cannot be replicated. No two are the same, each have their own personality and unique story.
Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to submit my artwork into the West Torrens competition. All the submissions were excellent and would like to see where this competition takes these artists. Again, thank you so much for your opportunity you give to all South Australians.
