My paintings are inspired by my natural environment. I love to make trips into the countryside or my garden to collect reference material, paint studies and draw sketches. My childhood and travels to Western Queensland also carry a long held inspiration and I feel like I will always have a lot of landscapes inside me that "need to be told". The simple yet unbelievable beauty of nature (and my complete love of being alone in it) are the biggest driving forces behind my endeavour to share it by painting in as honest a way as possible. The colours I use are painted in a subconscious way and they often materialize into a pallet that I wasn't quite expecting. I paint using high grade oils and acrylics onto canvas, linen and plywood. My paintings are sold framed with a raw wood floating frame and are ready to hang.
