Welcome to my website,

 


I moved from Surrey in England  to the Sunshine Coast in 2004 FOR A
MORE RELAXED, LAID BACK LIFESTYLE. i WAS AMAZED AT THE BEAUTIFUL
TROPICAL FLOWERS AND FOLIAGE IN THESE WONDERFUL SUB TROPICAL
 SURROUNDINGS, WHICH PROMPTED ME TO START PAINTING AGAIN AFTER
MANY YEARS.

I enjoyed art at school and went on to further education and
received a B.a honours in fine art.

I am  nEVER SHORT OF INSPIRATION living on the sunshine coast FINDING MANY
OF MY SUBJECT MATTER IN MY OWN GARDEN ,I INITIALLY PAINTED FOR MY OWN HOUSE AS
MY BARE WALLS NEEDED SOMETHING TO ADD COLOUR, AND UNSATISFIED WITH
MAINLY ABSTRACT IMAGES FOUND IN LOCAL GALLERIES I DECIDED TO PAINT
 REALISTIC BOTANICAL STUDIES WITH AN ABSTRACT TWIST, THE RESULT BEING
HIGHLY DETAILED INTERPRETATIONS ACCENTUATING THE FORMS,SHAPES AND BEAUTIFUL
TONAL QUALITIES THESE FLOWERS POSESS. THE FINISHED ARTWORKS ARE TIMELESS
PIECES THAT CAPTURE THE ESSENCE OF WHAT THESE PLANTS AND FLOWERS ARE ABOUT
AND FOR THOSE THAT DESIRE A PIECE THAT IS BOTH COLOURFUL, BUSY AND DETAILED
BUT NOT A TRADITIONAL STILL LIFE, NOR UNRECOGNISABLE SHAPES OR FORMS THESE MAKE
 A  WONDERFUL COMPROMISE.

I HAVE COMPLETED A NUMBER OF COMMISSIONS TO DATE AND WOULD BE HAPPY TO
DISCUSS ANY PREFERENCES, SUBJECT MATTER ETC SHOULD ANYONE BE INTERESTED
IN ONE OF MY PAINTINGS.
