While holidaying on Lembongan Island, Indonesia, I spent some glorious days sketching and photographing the local scenes, which were so unspoilt and totally enrapturing. This is a studio work of one of those special days exploring the villages and lifestyle of the natives on the island.

This painting is a revisitation to my abstract artworks. I allowed the colour and gestural mark making to drive my responses on the surface. I so enjoyed utilizing the thick, buttery nature of beeswax medium and smearing it on with trowels and knives.

This painting is about the feeling of been caught in the turbulent rip of a large wave and being tumbled and rolled about as the breakers pound onto the beach. The large scale of this work invites the viewer to dive into the experience ....but without getting wet!

A large scale work from my 'Estuary Series' depicting the stunning waterways of the Peel Region. The large scale format attempts to engage the viewer into the flows and eddies of cool, tidal waters. The reaction of the materials to each other on the surface create completely unique, organic nuances.
One of my first major paintings created from plein air studies of Manjar Bay, Mandurah. My desire to capture the life and essence of the vibrant place in which I live, is done on a large scale format in a expressive style. I absolutely enjoyed painting this one so much.

So what do you do with an abandoned car bonnet you stumble on while on a walk in the bush? Hmmm...the biggest challenge was getting it back to the studio! Luckily, I was dog sitting for a friend of mine. Similar to a mountain lion cross buffalo, I roped the bonnet to this dogs collar who dragged it effortlessly back home. It took me a while to decide what to do on the bonnet but had great fun attaching bits of metal from my secret stash to create an abstract landscape, perfect for outdoor spaces or a real talking point for social hubs.

Another painting from the 'Estuary Series', describing the waterways the Peel Region has to offer. As I live close to the Serpentine River, the character, beauty and flux of the water holds deep inspiration for me to create this series.

Have you ever longed to dive into the crystal waters of the ocean on a stinking hot day?Imagine dashing across the scorching sand on the beach and then feeling the exhilarating chill of cold water on hot skin as you immerse your body into the waves.The large scale of the painting invites the viewer to ‘jump in’ and experience the sensation the ocean offers and this is what I have attempted to portray in this piece.

My love of the deep richness of grass tree resin is the motivating factor for this triptych. I was dreaming about the many, happy moments walking my dog through the bush, symbolic of the turns and interruptions life gifts us with, in this painting, and how our pathways are peppered with texture, transparancy and vulnerability.

I had to cut up a $7,500 marri wood floor with a circular saw, on my hands and knees, a few years ago. I brought home as much of the pieces as I could as it was too beautiful to throw away. The pile sat on an old water tank lid in the weather for a few years before the inspiration came to use some of it to create 'Bote', a stylised rendition of an ancient Phoenician battle ship. I carved out the outlines of the image with a gemmil tool and then filled it with grated charcoal mixed with beeswax medium. Woodstain and oil paint were added, and to finish it off, some rough rope with a rusty, old shackle I found on the beach. It is mounted on a piece of 12mm marine ply.

Nature, the ultimate inspiration is the motivation to create this large scale diptych. I purposefully used non paint-like materials to describe my response to the beauty found in rocks, wood, stained pavements and shallow river beds. As I live close to the river, I spend precious moments staring into the water. This is particularly rewarding on days when the water is crystal clear.

My love of the ocean, the estuary and the nearby river, is the inspiration for this work, which is part of the 'Estuary' Series.I like to use unusual materials to make this work - bitumen, tree resins, acrylic, varnish and enamel as I endeavor to resemble the earthy, raw materials nature has to offer. The drips in the work resonate the feel of the cool water dribbling from the paddles onto my skin as I slide through the ripples in my canoe on one of my many pleasurable ventures on the river.
