Art is all about self- expression. My work is a response to what I see in the world around me and my attempt to communicate this response to the viewer.
My art practice has covered painting and drawing, sculpture, ceramics, mixed media and print making. However, currently most of my work is paintings in oils or acrylic paint on canvas, ranging from landscapes, portraiture and abstract images. My work is inspired by the beauty of the Dorrigo Plateau and particularly the Dorrigo Mountain, where I live. I am continually captivated by the natural beauty of the area during the different seasons and climatic conditions.
I often enjoy experimenting using a palette knife rather than a brush to obtain a very textural effect, especially in portraiture. Creating a portrait provides a great challenge to interpret the subject’s unique character and personality and still produce a recognisable image. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t!

My recent qualifications and awards include:

  • 2015 - Advanced Diploma of Visual Arts (Distinction)
  • 2015 – Dorrigo Show Fine Arts Competition – Non Traditional Award
  • 2016 Bellingen Community Arts Council – Members’ Art Prize for Painting

Solo exhibitions:

  • 2013 – “Looking At You” Exhibition of Portraits, Dorrigo
  • 2015 – “Journey To Abstraction”, Dorrigo

My work has been sold to buyers mainly in New South Wales.
