"There is no fear in beauty" - Virginia Star

"The more the world degenerates into a black abyss, the more I have a need and desire to paint a bright colourful world which emanates joy and happiness.

My art is created to reveal my innermost feelings, a world without fear.

A fascination with the night sky in our spiritual outback began in a remote location outside Broken Hill decades ago, a night so dark there were a quintillion stars glowing from horizon to horizon.

I have a great love of my country and its beautiful landscapes and uniqueness. Covering my landscapes in abstract flora represents beauty in life and pleasure in the visual."
