In 'Landscape and Memory', Simon Schama says that:

    'the ordinary everyday landscape reflects deeply who we are'

and in sharing my landscapes I am also sharing something of my memories.

Introduction

Hi! Welcome to my web site. I love to paint and draw, take photos, make jewellery and just spend time being creative.  Nothing gives me greater pleasure than to see my work being enjoyed by others.  

I grew up near Blackall, in Central Western Queensland and have spent most of my life in that region, the last twenty around Longreach, so my work is strongly influenced by this beautiful and often testing part of the country. I am now living at Hervey Bay and am absolutely loving the gentle climate and sea views.


My Work

I love landscapes and still-lifes, but also like to challenge myself and tackle subjects less familiar.

When painting I work predominantly in oils or watercolours, but also use charcoal, pastel, graphite, ink and acrylics. I dabble in print making and I make lots of Jewellery. 

I have an Etsy shop - Periaptjewellery and fine art.

 I would love to see you there.


Please enjoy your visit. 

 

If you have any questions, please contact me.

I am happy to teach beginner to intermediate workshops, and will happily travel to more remote locations.
