My passion for creating art is linked to my love of Interior Design, in the way collections of beautiful objects and textures can enhance and inspire our daily life. I use texture, a strong play of light and dark, layered with a filigree of gold among the multi-faceted planes. In 2011 a devastating earthquake struck my beautiful garden city of Christchurch, leaving broken souls in a broken city. Facing destroyed property and the loss of my lovely friend, my life of art seemed so meaningless. I then moved to the beautiful city of Sydney, and my harbourside apartment kindled my passion for painting again. I strive again to recreate impressions of beauty, currently in the form of petal clusters on canvas, both richly hued and elegantly pale, laced with gold. I love to use delicious titles for my work, I see both flavours and colours as interchangeable! Art should grab your heart, lift your soul and make you turn back to drink in the story told by the Artist.
