Hi there,

Thanks for visiting!

For me doing my artwork can be succinctly summed up in the following fantastic metaphorical quote by Kandinsky:

  1. “Colour is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key then another to cause vibration of the soul.”

About my work and influences:

Sometimes called an eclectic artist, work is expressed in both two and three dimensions across a range of mediums. Besides the multiple skills and knowledge built up over the many years as both artist and teacher, in one’s practice a heightened sense of awareness, flexibility and openness is always essential for creative outcomes.

In my art practice visual imagery, personal metaphors and symbols evolve through exploring influences that impact on my senses, memory and perception.

Although the surroundings of tropical North Queensland rainforest, mountains, beach and backyard are a constant and rich source for inspiration and materials to manipulate, my art practice is very much a spiritual practice, building upon one’s intuitive and creative powers. It is a fertile means of tapping into ones inner world and making sense of, and to, the outer world. It is a process and journey of creativity, revelation, transformation and personal interpretation.

Being ever mindful of dynamic forces, energies & thoughts that connect/disconnect all things visible and invisible, my current work focuses to reflect such interactions. The multifaceted aspect of human subconscious and conscious thought is complex and my visual language has become much more intimate, personal and satisfying. Art (thoughts, ideas and their physical manifestations) serves to feed those further down the river.

As a professional artist I produce work for group/solo exhibitions, retail/merchandise and the occasional commission. As a qualified professional art teacher I have taught for many years in education systems at primary, secondary and tertiary levels. Privately my specialty drawing/painting practice discipline area has been the running of life drawing classes in my own studio for many years.

Other quotes ~ food for thought ~

  1. ‘The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.’ ~ Aristotle
  1. “Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.” ~ Carl Jung
  1. “Goals give purpose. Purpose gives faith. Faith gives courage. Courage gives enthusiasm. Enthusiasm gives energy. Energy gives life. Life lifts you over the bar.” ~Bob Richards, American Olympic Pole Vaulter
  1. “Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything.”
    - Napoleon Hill

Peace, love, light and joy!
