Contrasting Similarities

Description : Influence:
Sometimes the simplest of colour palettes have the most appeal. Simple, pure and unadulterated. Not cluttered but elegant and stylish. This timeless colour combination of black and white has been portrayed here through beautiful Calla Lilies. White lillies symbolising purity and innocence while Black symbolises elegance and mystery.
The flowers have an interesting mythological history. Calla lilies are said to come from the ancient god Hera, the wife of Zeus. In the story, Zeus brought Hercules to nurse from his wife while she was sleeeping. He wanted his son to have the strength of the gods. Hera awoke and pushed the baby away from her. Drops of milk flew across the sky creating the milky way and everywhere they landed on earth, calla lilies bloomed.

"An everchanging palette of colour infussed with energy and movement through paint and texture"

"Discovering a passion for art at a young age was the beginning of a long creative journey. After Secondary College, I completed a two year Fine Art and Design Course at TAFE. Struggling with funds saw me look for full time employment. With the skills I had learnt and my willingness to learn, I secured full time work in an Art Department at a large Offset Printing Firm. I continued my full time work in this field for many years. In my spare time I dabbled in my true love of drawing and painting; commission pieces and my own fave subjects which I was lucky to sell.

Last year was a big move from full time Graphic Designer to full time Artist. Having my own Home Studio allows me to concentrate on my true passion now.

Searching original techiques with different angles is nothing new for me. Finding ways to put my work "out there" is a constant challenge and one I love.

Not being content with the traditional approach alone, I find myself searching ways to tweak it a little, to "think outside the square" adding extra visual enticement. Exploring new concepts, ideas, having a keen imagination for creating new scenarios using other mediums, materials and texture is also fun and lets face it, this is why I paint.......I love the creative journey.

Like a lot of things around us which evolve, so does the world of art. I am not trying to create a new "movement" in teh cycle, merely move with my own artistic ideas and creative ability to keep in line with todays tgrends.

My paintings are a reflection on how I see our beautiful world and all it envelopes. My passion for life and its beauty is portrayed in every piece of my work. Art gives me the license to freely express myself, a way to share my individuality and how I see the world, one which I hope you will enjoy as you browse through my works".
