My current body of work involving abstract leaves. Each leaf is made of layers of colour – just like life, building layers good and bad to create a whole. They are on exhibition at the Federal Hotel in Bellingen for the month of May 2021.

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.
Grief Series: Falling
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.
