In 2008 my artwork took a twist as I became fixated on the rocks and roots of trees on Magnetic Island. These natural subjects represented for me a strength that I had not fully appreciated in nature. But as I began spending more time examining the natural landscape of the island, the closer I got to connecting with it.
Each painting tells its story as I apply a mixture of mediums. I begin with a composition, add natures understory or tidal wash ups to the canvas, seal with gesso, then add my own layers using paint.
