I am an architect. I see the world around me in my own unique way. My watercolours allow me to capture, to craft and create visual representations of spaces and places that evoke something more than the physical reality. The visual tapestry I am confronted with every time I look out the window, or go for a walk or even travel to distant lands are overwhelming.
I see a watercolour painting in every warm glowing ray of sunlight, every cool deep shadow and shimmering reflection over water. I am excited with the changing light through the entirety of the day as these moments provide me the keys to capturing the ever illusive qualities of mood and atmosphere.
My passion is painting plein-air and I enjoy immensely painting dramatic landscapes, seascapes, urban and nautical themes. My paintings seek to exploit the drama and ephemeral qualities of light and to capture on paper, ordinary everyday places with a new evocative celebration of light
My work continues to be exhibited both locally and overseas. I conduct regular specialty workshops and painting demonstrations to a broad range of enthusiastic students, artists and community groups. I teach regularly through a variety of art societies and associations. I have also created a number of online watercolour courses and teach regular online classes to both absolute beginners and advanced students.
