Artist Statement

“I paint objects as I think them not as I see them”  Pablo Picasso 

When I read this quote, I felt an immediate affinity as I too paint intuitively and work from something that comes from deep within.  Inspiration often comes from memories of places I’ve usually lived in as this is where I’ve formed the strongest connection with the landscape.

I utilise my emotional responses to the landscape to express myself in an almost abstract way to paint an interpretative view of the subject. Each landscape has its own energy and induces different reactions, for instance my work drawn from living in a remote part of central Queensland, is very different from work evoked by time I spent living on the coast. I currently live in the Gippsland region of Victoria with towering mountain ash forests and lush green rolling hills close by. It’s while walking and spending time within this Gippsland region that I’m inspired by the shapes, textures and colours that surround me daily.

My art practice often seems to imitate the natural world as I build up layers and then strip certain ones away, much the same way as the landscape will be build up and eroded. The painting process itself then becomes a play between being meditative and thoughtfully assessing the work as it progresses. The medium I enjoy working with the most is mixed media, combining acrylic and polymer paint with inks, shellac, conte crayon, oil sticks and charcoal to present work with the depth of layering that I find in the landscapes themselves.
