ABSTRACT, PAPERCLAY, MIXED MEDIA ARTIST
BASED ON GOLD COAST QUEENSLAND AUSTRALIA
It goes unnoticed, we move to the rhythm, the repetition begins......
A decision, an interaction, an experience; a daily occurrence in the conversation of life. We dance to beat sometimes fast, sometimes slow, but the pulse of life encapsulates us all.
In my artwork I love to explore nature and humanity, what inspires us in the everyday. I look for emotion and perspective in each piece I create whether I am working in impressionism, abstract or clay, each piece will have its own visual language. My impressionism artworks will always capture light: reflections on water, pathways, roads and buildings to mention a few. Abstraction I love to work with colour and plenty of it!! My clay pieces are peaceful and serene, I work with faces and nature on freestanding pieces or wall mounts.
I have been painting since 2007 and finished my Fine Art Degree in 2017. I usually work with a lot of layers of acrylic paint and find timber is the best support for my work. Once finished I use multiple layers of varnish for longevity and a brilliant gloss finish.
