Exhibition runs until 29 June 2019.
Please call in if you are in the hood. We would love to see you.

I develop much of my work in the studio referencing my sketches, photos and written descriptions which help transport me to another place in my memory – back to places I have travelled, known and experienced. It’s as if there is a delayed reaction as if my thoughts need some sort of incubation time.
Recently I have turned to my immediate environment for subject matter where the sounds and my view of the mountain behind me are living, changing yet constant, sources of inspiration. I note the changes in light during different times of the day and the season. Dry crackle hum. The bush pings, the air stings, the kookaburras laugh.
DISTRACTIONS is somewhat autobiographical where the paintings served as distractions to greater world events, and to more personal my-world events.
