My artwork is inspired by the nature and environment of the Mallee region.
Local birds and animals are often my choice of subject. Their shapes, colours and movements are well suited to the style of painting that I enjoy. Using expressive marks and bold colours, I aim to capture more than a physical likeness. I want to create a sense of a subject’s character and the impression of its environment.
I use a combination of watercolour paint and coloured inks on paper. I also make use of markers and pens to further develop textural elements and strengthen the rhythmic qualities to the work.
