I paint therefore I am".
With thanks to Descartes for providing this insight!
I'm a Western Australian artist who works from studios in Fremantle as well as the Ferguson Valley
(a lot of the time I also work from home and drink too much tea) .
My current work is particularly inspired by the beauty of Western Australia and is informed by regular walks through forests and coastal pathways. During these walks, I am repeatedly blown away by our unique flora and fauna which is both visually striking and emotionally engaging.
Rather than focusing on realistic representations, I take a more abstracted approach, using bold lines, colour, and geometric forms to create a sense of movement and energy. In doing so I hope to encourage viewers to see the beauty of nature in a new light. For me, art has the power to transform our relationship with the world around us, encouraging us to see wonder and complexity in even the most ordinary of things.
