Paintings currently available for sale inspired by vivid colour and the magical ocean.
Yachting seascapes have been a longtime feature of my work. Inspired by ocean racing around Melbourne’s Port Phillip Bay, Ballarat’s Lake Wendouree, Geelong’s Festival of Sail and Hamilton Island’s famous Race Week. I love the colour and movement of yachts being challenged by nature’s elements.
My abstract paintings feature loads of colour and texture inspired by the natural world.
My art career includes my skills with illustration, logos, hand-lettering and corporate branding – a lot of fun! Many projects are in tourism for Melbourne and regional areas surrounding Port Phillip Bay. Other projects have specialised in working with loyal clients over many years in areas of medical research, surf life-saving, transport, gardening, vineyards and town festivals to name a few. Voluntary work with Australian Red Cross was a rewarding and productive series of international aid projects.
Art lovers regularly commission me to paint a favourite scene or subject. These paintings celebrate a memorable event such as a holiday, a special space in a beautiful home , or as gifts for loved ones.
Many years of experience painting and exhibiting, a Certificate 4 in Training and Education, and Diploma of Visual Arts (painting) have enhanced my art classes on Hamilton Island. I have also had the fun and privilege of conducting art classes and projects for primary schools in Geelong and surrounding regional towns. I have also held classes in my own studio for adults and children.
