We were extremely lucky here in the Narrabeen lake area during the recent flooding that devastated many up North. I was so drawn to the beautiful light reflections in these puddles seen from my backyard.
Since 2017, I’ve been experimenting and developing my painting skills and processes. With a lake only footsteps away from my home studio and the coast also nearby, I've lived and breathed the landscapes I paint. I like to paint landscapes in the alla prima style en plein air.
A recent focus for me has been Still Life studies. I'm practicing traditional oil painting techniques under the guidance of Artist, Jessica Ashton, who encourages a contemporary approach with full, gestural brushstrokes and pushing the highlights to the limits and beyond. My completed artworks include a range of Still Life paintings depicting hand-made objects, curiosities and florals in all stages of their existence.
As artists we point out the things surrounding us that others seem to miss, and there is beauty in it all.
