Artist statement

Water, ponds and the environment are primary themes that come through in my art. Experimenting with making marks in paint, mosaic, or ceramics to convey a feeling. My work is often quite abstract, with marks to create mood, texture, light and movement. Inspired by the properties of water and light I explore its magical, elusive nature. I love nature and my work is about natural places. I have been working on creating scenes made up of many pieces in ceramics. We all love the wilderness and enjoying the countryside. I love to be inspired by my surroundings. Some of my work is about the Australian countryside and places I have visited in Europe.

I have won State and National awards for my mosaic work but enjoy painting, sculpture, ceramics and creating interactive work as well. I Had a 2 week residency in France last year and I’m continuing to experiment with ideas developed whilst there. I’ve been painting towards an exhibition in April now cancelled due to Corona virus. Still painting and experimenting!
