As I sit quietly and listen to the land, feeling her energy and rhythm I can observe the colours and moods as they are slowly revealed to me. My paintings are about interpreting these emotions and observations as I immerse myself in the landscape.
I am dedicated to plein air painting and sketching from life, and this process underpins all my work. There is an unpredictability in working 'en plein air' that infuses the artwork with energy and tension. This is what I love about the process.
I am constantly gathering views, flashes of moments and imagery, and assemble my memories into simple and emotional interpretations of the beauty that surrounds
A recent trek through the Flinders Ranges has been the inspiration for my most recent paintings. Being immersed in that vast landscape infused my paintings with colour and energy. I have been progressively painting and abstracting these images as I continue to interpret the essence of the land.
