I am a visual artist based on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria. I am perhaps best known for my portraits and abstract expressionist style. Working predominantly with acrylic paint, I also like to experiment with oils, pastels, ink and collage. A medical practitioner, painting provides me with the balance I need to manage the demands of my work. Art helps me to better understand the human experience: how we relate to each other, to our environment and to our selves. Themes explored through my work include: human rights, social justice, mental illness and feminism.
My work is influenced by many things across the personal, the political and the aesthetic. Whilst I paint landscapes, portraits and abstract paintings, I am most particularly interested in figurative works. Body language, story telling and the diversity of human experience are all themes you will find in my work.
I have exhibited widely and my paintings are held in private collections across Australia, in the UK, France , Singapore, Canada and the USA. 3 of my paintings are held in the permanent collection at Gallery Diderot, Chateau d' Orquevaux, France.
In this short video I talk about my membership of the Peninsula Studio trail group and describe my work and what inspires me.
