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.
