Currently focusing on landscapes personified as a human’s life with all its scrapes, bumps and bruises. We somehow manage to navigate it, but how? Thanking the universe for the uplifting patches of blue. The horizon isn’t straight because life is kind of like that. Experimental layers are my fascination in this work. Acrylic on board ‘Treading Water’ Unframed $800. w 90 cm x h 60cm Plus postage. Email for sale enquires. Abstract Contemporary Landscape.
I am exploring the clay medium at the moment and enjoying the process. These leaves were developed through a grief period of losing people near and dear to me. They are beautiful gifts that can be given to someone that is grieving or are stunning as just leaves hanging in your home or office. My leaves are available at various local outlets including:
Art Space Urunga
Dorrigo National Park Rainforest Centre
Body of work from 2021 involving abstract leaves morphing into landscapes. Each leaf is made of layers of colour – just like life, building layers of good and bad to create a whole.
Warm changes (maroon), Cool changes (blue/green) both framed in oak. $500 each. Rustic changes I and II (orange) SOLD. To purchase any of my work please contact me via phone or email.
Beauty in the Everyday
This body of work is based on the busyness of the everyday (represented by the textured backgrounds) in contrast to the beautiful native plants that surround us. These plants in their un-nurtured and often wild looking forms take us to a mentally calm and natural place where we’re free to be our accepted, non-hectic selves. Breathe in the calm – they literally keep us alive. Theses works include bumps and rough patches as that is my style.

Grief Series: Falling All works from this series are sold.
This series of work is based on Grief. I have personified leaves in their different stages of decomposing and related this to a grieving person, something I am familiar with. The leaves are individualised, similar to a persons grief. The stages change like the leaf’s colours and whilst you can never return to be the exact healthy happy leaf you once were, there is beauty in some of the colours, textures and patterns that you experience.
