Artist Statement

Currently I am most interested in painting of natural areas, especially coastal scenes and tend to concentrate on sunrise and sunsets when I really appreciate the glorious colours and patterns of clouds nteresting. I like, too, the waves at the beach. I hope that my portrayal of clouds and waves continually improve over time.

Since travelling to Central Australia, the desert areas, I have done a number of paintings, mainly with oils, of desert landforms, especially The Breakaways just north of Coober Pedy in South Australia.

I am very committed to art and am studying Fine Art through Curtin University. I have gained High Distinctions in each unit studied to date....
