Most Australians live near the coast so going to
the beach is a popular leisure activity. I live on the Gold Coast so I
regularly paint sun surf and sand.
I love the human form; this piece shows a local sun loving
species in its natural habitat. Two
figures are revelling in the sun, soaking up its warmth; his face is turned toward
the sun however she is obeying Australia’s slip, slop and slap slogan and wears
a hat to shade her face.
Do you feel their languid repose as they nearly melt into
the sand – life’s a beach!
Original artwork painted in Oil on heavy duty stretched canvas.
It measures 1015mm x 760mm.
‘Child’s Play’ is a bright, cheerful, colorful image painted in a modern contemporary style in all the colours of the rainbow. It was painted with the view to add colour to the home.
In this large piece I painted geometric shapes to create a pleasant image and used every colour I could manage. Are they children’s building blocks? could be! It would particularly suit a children’s bedroom or the nursery but at the moment I currently have it in my own bedroom as I love this piece and the colours make me happy.
This small piece of atmospheric abstract art in orange,
purple and green is a very moody and mysterious piece. It is full of character
and takes the viewer to unknown places in their mind. The distinctive image
brings up memories long forgotten.
Painted in acrylic on a wood. It has a timber support ton back to hang on
wall or it can be lent on a shelf as shelf art.
It is a very small piece of art and is perfect to fit into
those places that need just a little colour or interest to make a corner of the
house seem interesting.
The piece is signed on the back and is finished with a clear
When we visited Tasmania, I immediately hit the bitumen. Like a modern-day explorer, I use bitumen roads and highways to seek the natural beauty of Tasmania. However, whilst these highways traverse and float over the land acting like a magic carpet to take me wherever I wish, combined with today’s ever-growing civilisation, they tend to mask the real Tasmania.
This piece is initially painted in many layers of blues
greens oranges and purple to represent the colours of natural Tasmania – it’s beautiful
trees, mountains, lakes, rivers and sky.
This montage of colour is then covered in grey and white to
represent today’s continual encroachment of buildings and development on the
landscape. Grey and white signifies tin,
concrete and steel, all dull uninspiring colours. Then over that, is painted harsh black to
represent the bitumen.
Tasmania’s natural beauty is hidden beneath civilisation. As
we traverse the bitumen to get where we want to go, we must delve deep to see the
natural Tasmania. Look through the black,
grey and white, it is there underneath, waiting to be discovered.
