Painting

I am a self-taught abstract artist living in Maleny on the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. Years ago I stepped into the Queensland Art Gallery and saw the Impressionists’ thick, buttery colours and expressive strokes – I knew this was the medium for me.

I embarked on my painting journey, later in life, never forgetting that fateful day at the Queensland gallery.

Once I picked up a palette knife and created my own style of expression, a creative world in visual representation of emotion opened up. I love working with the combination of colour and modelling paste to give texture and vibrancy in my paintings

Drawing inspiration from the ups and downs of life, I mix modelling paste with my paints to give a thick layer of bold colour to reflect mood. I apply the colours with a palette knife to create movement and to inject energy in to my work.
