Focused on Creativity

My recurring theme seems to be based on the nature of things. I guess this relates to my childhood, where I grew up in the south west of Western Australia, amongst the Karri and Jarrah forests. For the children that lived there, their backyard and my backyard was the forest. It was virtually our secret garden. We used to build ‘cubby’ houses amongst the trees and on the ground. Our imaginations ran wild. For me, this was a great life.

I was born in Manjimup, Western Australia in 1953. Completed Visual Arts degree 2005-08, with Graduate Diploma completed in 2010. My work is influenced by growing up in the country surrounded by nature, and my themes always seem to revolve around landscape. Both abstract and impressionistic (which I call my ‘dab-dab’ style) work. I like to work on larger canvases, as – due to my physical limitations (I am in a wheelchair) – I am not comfortable working on smaller spaces. I like the room to express myself.
