I grew up in the Hunter Valley of NSW, and now live and work in Sydney with my daughter.
I am a self-taught artist, and have only started painting again in the last few years.
For me making art feels like an extension of an internal world. But it also feels like the inner world (soul) wanting to spill out into the outer world.
I especially love oil painting, the texture, the smell, the colours. I am inspired by everything and nothing. The void, the details of life and everything in between. But I am especially interested in the emotional world, the difficult and the excruciatingly beautiful.
We are all the same, we live and love and break and feel! In the art, in creativity the art work is like a window to connection and openness between us all. Barriers can break away can we can simply be!
