My earliest memories are of nature walks with my father in our garden... and drawing.  I would pick flowers and press them in the pages of books to preserve their beauty.  And later, when dried, I would hold the thin petals to the light and study their delicate structures.  I supposed it was this love of flowers and my need to observe detail that led me to floral painting.  I like to approach each composition with the intention of revealing something unseen or unnoticed about the flower: I think of them as floral ‘portraits’.

 

I work in the lively medium of acrylics, sealed with oil glazes, which bring the blooms to life on the canvases.  I often paint on oversized canvases - limited in size only by the ability to get them through my front door!  The large scale is immersive - providing a dramatic perspective into the floral world. 

 

I'm always looking for new blooms. I visit parks, flower markets and neighbourhood gardens.  As the seasons change, there is always something new to admire! I live and work from my bushland studio in Sydney.

I am represented by: Art to Art, Melbourne; Aarwun Gallery, Canberra; Moulton Gallery, Sydney; Milk Factory Gallery, Bowral NSW, Watershed Gallery, Pokolbin NSW and Feather & Lawry, Toowoomba QLD.  I exhibit in several group exhibitions each year including the Gosford Regional Gallery, Lindfield, Hunters Hill, Balmain and Toowoomba Art Shows.   

When not preparing for exhibitions, I paint commissions.  Commissions are a great way to own a painting uniquely specific for your needs...and the process is fun too!

My 2021, solo exhibition, 'unfurl' will be run online.  The catalogue is available now.
