Over many years I have explored a variety of subjects and used different media for my expression, but I have always been attracted to painting landscapes.
Although I painted with oils for some time the problem with solvents pushed me into using acrylics – a medium I found to be exciting and versatile.
Whilst my work has been interpreted as “traditional” it moves into a contemporary impressionist style with emphasis on capturing the qualities of light and colour in the landscape.
I have exhibited and sold my work over many years with various galleries and exhibitions.
More recent successes include:
True Blue Gallery Hobart
HAOTI Winter Collection – Salamanca Long Gallery Hobart – (3 years)
HAOTI Most Affordable – Summer Collection – (5 years)
Melbourne Affordable Art Show 2005
Camberwell Art Exhibition
Launceston Art Society – Celebrating Life 2007– Highly Commended
Meandering 2007 – Bullock Consulting Award – “The Essence of the Valley”.
1. BARLEY GOLD – TABLE CAPE TASMANIA
FRAMED SIZE: 860 x 600mm
Late afternoon mid summer, the warmth of this barley crop created an eye catching foreground to the cool shimmering light of distant Rocky Cape.
2. ROCK POOL – FRIENDLY BEACHES
FRAMED SIZE: 800 x 500mm
This amazing part of Tasmania’s east coast is full of surprises – white beaches, clear blue green water, isolation and wonderful lichen covered granite rocks.
3. WINTER SOLSTICE – MOULTING LAGOON
FRAMED SIZE: 780 X 640mm
The end of a perfect day on Tasmania’s east coast. The sun has just slipped over the distant ranges. It is cooling fast and very still. The only sounds are the soft tones of the black swans as they settle before nightfall.
