I am passionate about colour and line, and I am inspired by the great mystery of stepping into the unknown with my art, to see what I find on the other side.
I was born in the New England Ranges in Northern New South Wales, Australia and grew up surrounded by broad valleys, mountain ranges, big clear skies and an extraordinary clarity of light. My dad flew a small plane and some of my earliest memories are of looking down on the earth below so I was almost born with an aerial perspective.
Those early experiences of landscape and bush, of abstract distance and intimate sensory close ups, inform all my work. Often working intuitively, I use layers and mixed media to develop strong original images and colour to explore not only the world around me but also inner landscapes, memory and connections. I love to use the emotion of colour and movement to draw the eye in, around and through the work.
My work can include many diverse art making techniques such as painting, printmaking, collage, drawing and digital photography. Today’s printmaking technology allows contemporary art to be accessible to a broad audience and also enables the exciting possibilities of playing with scale.
