THE LONGER VIEW (diptych), oils and cold wax on panel, 200cm x 100cm


I am a contemporary mixed media artist and art teacher, living  in S E Queensland, Australia.


I use drawing materials with mixed media, to create abstract paintings that aim to evoke aspects of the natural world imbued with a sense of depth and mystery … that there’s more there than a surface consolation.


My approach is organic and physical, ideally allowing each piece to evolve unpredictably, with a balance of intuition and intention. 


In our busy world, I am convinced that we need to reconnect with the ‘great rhythms and flows of nature’ (John Wolsely) and find the still, quiet place within.


I am represented by: TUSK GALLERY, Melbourne.  You can read TUSK's blog 'inside their studio' about the background behind my work.
