The Artist

(Here I am sketching at Lake Judd near Mt Anne in Tasmania’s Southwest National Park.)

Hi, thank you for visiting my website and viewing my art.. My studio is in Hobart at the base of kunanyi/Mount Wellington. Landscape is my main inspiration for creating abstract/semi abstract paintings and I’ve been loving creating art for over thirty years.

Many people seem to have lost touch with the significant role landscape plays in our lives. I hope my art can act as a reminder of this while, at the same time, visually sharing my connection with landscape and joy in creating. The mixed media process I use embraces chance and randomness, a metaphor for the unpredictable influences around us. Paintings begin with play and experimentation. As they progress I use my intuition and experience to refine and resolve them.

My work has received several awards at local exhibitions and I continue to enjoy experimenting, developing and sharing my art.
