Artist Statement & Bio
Artist Statement I am an expressive abstract artist, based in Sydney, Australia. I paint with acrylics,usually on canvas, sometimes incorporating other mixed media. I paint intuitively,using bold colour and broad gestural marks.This work, Cicada Creek, is inspired by time spent playing in creeks as a kid.(Honestly, give a kid a creek and they'll invent a whole world!) One particularweekend comes to mind, with a friend from school at her parents property inKangaroo Valley. Everyday we wandered down the hill through the bush, dodging thecows, and played all day amongst the rocks and reeds. Heaven.
