Example of Your Work Image

Painting daily (mostly) since November 2021.

The beauty of creation has always inspired me. Painting has become part of my therapy and helps me have a better understanding of the world around me. I sit in my studio window and watch the light an color play on the Blue Mountains; walk local trails; wander the beach; cloud chase with my sister.

Experimenting is my nature. Being self-taught I don't get stuck in the rules or purpose - acrylic can be used like watercolor, chunks of an old cottage are great to paint on, fallen branches and lichen are art in themselves. I strive to truly see light and color, texture and shape around me.

Practice makes progress.
