I am inspired by a curiosity of my surroundings and of natural forms across figurative, landscape and floral subjects. Imagery is formed using ink, charcoal, acrylic paint, soft pastel, graphite, watercolour and oil pastel onto canvas and paper.

My work reflects a fascination in the balance and sensitivity of fluid line.
A quiet energy is felt during mark making, allowing the work to take on a layered and reflective journey. Intuitive use of fluid line and colour evokes an honest connection through me as an artist and onto the surface. My energetic and passionate nature is evident across the work. It reflects a delight in transforming observations, captured or remembered images into figurative, landscape or floral works.

The Murray region has an incredibly diverse landscape and provides great inspiration – from the magnificent Murray River, along the Kiewa Valley and up onto the high plains. The 2003 bushfires in the high country were catastrophic. I witnessed first hand the devastation and resilience within the land, as closely observed its transformation over the following decade.

Capturing the life model form has become pivotal in my journey as an artist, and inspires endless exploration into the nuances of the human figure. A curiosity in the balance and sensitivity of fluid line extends from my work as a calligrapher and a fascination for Japanese calligraphy art. Recent Sumi-e workshops in Japan and Australia saw this interest intensify, where the importance in sensitivity and balance of line was reinforced with great passion. 

My most recent figurative works are inspired by my practice of yoga, and explores a more abstract ‘flow’ of the figure – the beginning of a new body of work.
