Highly Commended at Drummoyne Art Society Exhibition

Ord River – West Kimberley I love this piece and the judge (Paul McCarthy), approved too. Acrylic inks & paint on Arches 300gsm watercolour paper. I love the vibrancy of inks, but no second chances when you paint with it, unlike watercolour where you have time to blot or wash it out. Beautifully framed in …

Road to Emma Gorge

Loving the colours, the acrylic inks and the challenge of capturing an impression of the landscape in the West Kimberley.


Detail from a piece I had started in 2020 and although I liked it, felt it didn’t quite meet my image of what I wanted to say….so I reworked it in 2022 with cold wax & oil.I wanted to show visual sightlines, bent lines of perspective, (both figuratively and literally) and man-made lines mingled with …

Back at the easel

Back into the studio with a clearer head than the past few days and weeks. My lovely glass palette is the bottom shelf from an old fridge. It works so well with the palette knife as I mix cold wax medium and oil paint. Easy to clean too. Gotta luv re-purposing!

Greenway Art Prize 2021 Finalist

Drummoyne Art Society Art Awards

Have entered and packaged up my paintings and they are ready to deliver on Monday for the Annual Exhibition. Very excited as last year it could only be held online. Always wonderful to see paintings “in the flesh!!”

Tuesday in the Studio

Recently back from some en plein air sketching beside Brogers Creek and have worked up a piece in watercolours. I am keen to try a larger work, really accentuating the light and shade of the bushes and water.

Sunlit Hills before breakfast – Process

I really wanted to capture the startling effect of the morning sun as it hit the hills of the canyon we were camped in, in central Australia. I drew it a couple of times. This is the first preliminary sketch in oil pastel. I played with the shapes a second time, again in oil pastels, …

Done and Dusted

The last weekend of my exhibition flew by, with so many visitors….friends, colleagues and new faces. It has been a wonderful experience having the chance to both see my works up on the gallery wall, to talk about them and the stories that motivated me, but it has been equally rewarding to hear the stories …
