Acrylic and Ink

I was raised in the outback of Western Queensland on a 2,500 acre property 3 Kilometers outside of a small town called Miles. Here I grew up in the bush where exploring nature was part of everyday life. I studied closely the layers of various plant lives, sometimes by pulling it apart to see how God made it. The hidden qualities I found always amazed me. By the age of 8, I realized that there were patterns and shapes that kept recurring in nature. With further research into the plant world as an art form, I found that all plants have the same mathematics that go into producing such intricate patterns in nature. Through my passion for the plant life and living so closely with nature as a child, I was encouraged to pursue my passion in painting and have dedicated my life to creating pieces that utilise these shapes and patterns that became a part of my life as a child.

In my works I use a free flow approach utilizing various pours, squirts, runs, a little gravity, and a little time, to imitate nature in all its forms hence exaggerating the unseen qualities of flora and fauna. I let the paint depict the direction in which the piece will flow, I only facilitate each layer as it flows onto the canvas. I bond with each piece through texture, touch, colour, emotion and music.  Only then can I use the method of subtraction and addition throughout each layer before delving into my subconscious memory to pursue the creative journey which each piece takes me on.  I depict my creations in an unusual and colourful way, using the principles and elements of design.
