I am interested in exploring the organization of colour, line, and texture in the landscape.
The play of rock and water on the Sunshine coast offers endless possibilities to explore.
I live along side the Trail islands and I am fascinated by the ever changing atmospheric and ocean conditions surrounding them.
The islands present a haunting solidity for me and I try to express this in my work. They remain eternal and constant amid the ever changing world of tides, storms, fog conditions, forest fires etc.
I hope to inspire a sense of serenity and quiet appreciation of what is universal in the landscape here.’
