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

I use drawing materials with acrylics or oils and wax, to create abstract works that subtly reference the natural world - its patterns and processes - as well as things intangible and unseen.

My first SOLO EXHIBITION of 2016 has opened at Butter Factory Arts Centre, Cooroy.

INTO THE BLUE (titled after my painting of the same name) runs until 17 February.

Into the Blue is a series of abstract paintings that aims to evoke aspects of the natural world and more especially blue, reminiscent of sky and water.

Many of the works retain an ambiguity – is this blue the sky or is it the water?

Into the Blue suggests a passage into the deep unknown.  The work embodies a sense of depth and mystery … that there’s more there than a surface consolation. It asks questions.
