My artworks are of diverse styles and my Christian faith inherently influences my paintings. Each series of artworks that I complete follow a new direction, a new beginning with a concurrent theme of peacefulness and joy. One thing that remains the same is my love of the use of colour to express these jubilant artworks. I enjoy the free flowing way that paint moves and the patterns that emerge in the process and embrace the freedom of watching things unfurl in an exciting path of discovery. Pictures often emerge along the way that capture the vision and explain an amazing story. People often comment that they see much more in the paintings than I see as I am painting them and they often convey a message to them personally in a way that I cannot explain.
My home houses my studio, workshop and art gallery and I welcome people to visit to view my original paintings and mosaics and participate in workshops. Please phone me on 0438130665 or send a request via my contact page to arrange an appointment.
