More than 30 years of art practice
I graduated from Sydney's National Art School with a major in painting and have been a practising artist for more than 30 years. My exhibitions have included works based on inner-city bar compositions, ocean landscapes, river scrub and mangrove landscapes.
My experimental mangrove landscape paintings use multiple layers of pigment, often run across the canvas in different directions. I often paint the canvases flat on the ground, drip pigment from different heights, then lift and turn the works as the liquid paint forms patterns and colour combinations.
This process can be quite random, but often produces unexpected and highly distinctive works that are almost impossible to replicate. Sometimes birds are hidden in the leaves and twisted stems of the mangroves, or obscured by dribbles, drips and trickles of pigment.
