From a young age, I was a creative thinker. Some of my earliest memories from the age of four are painting the blossom trees in my preschool garden classroom. The exploration of my artistic gift was nurtured throughout my childhood, with teachers commenting in annual reports that my artistic ability was impressive and that I should be encouraged to follow a career of fine arts.

My creative journey was also encouraged by my father who was a cinematographer, a writer and a film producer. He introduced me to the beauty of the natural world, encouraging me to see the detail in every object—the light shimmering on the water, the colours of the rocks in the river beds and the colour of morning light and evening shadows.

My desire to create beautiful art has never ceased. My love of exploring nature from oceanic reefs, high mountain streams and the Australian bush can be seen in my art throughout my lifelong creative journey.

Today, my artwork has evolved and can be described as “contemporary nature” in its style. Predominately a watercolour artist, I explore unique ways to share my love of the natural world.

Often called “the rock artist” and “seascape artist”, my artwork has included many paintings of natural water courses, river beds, ocean reefs, shorelines and rainforests. I created my unique style throughout my artistic journey—over thirty years of exploring layers of colour and shadows while capturing the essence of free flowing water.

The collectors of my art often comment on how they can feel the water running through my artwork, as they become immersed in the refreshing clear, clean waters of the streams and oceans in my paintings.

I believe through my paintings the viewer can connect with nature, it’s gentle rhythm, its immense power and its cleansing ability to calm the soul.

My recent exhibition, “Visual Sound – the Artist & the Composer” enabled me to add a new dimension to my artwork through linking unique original score music created by fellow artist/composer Kieran Roberts, to individual artworks.

It was delivered as an interactive exhibition where the viewer was able to link to and hear each piece of music directly from Soundcloud, thus enabling a new dimension of visual sound to be experienced. All this enabled the viewer to more fully experience the depth of the ocean, the creatures of the rainforest and the trickle of the streams.

  1. Your work makes me smile. You love the things I too love… water and rocks. My last sketch was of just rocks!!!! Great work, thanks for sharing!

    • Thank you Cheryl,

      Your kind words are wonderful to receive. I have spent years creating a personal style in my watercolour & canvas acrylic artworks to achieve the depth & feeling of flowing water. As an intuitive artist somehow rocks seem to ground me and as such I return to paint them often. So together with my water theme they provide an amazing calmness in my spirit each time I paint them. You can follow me on Facebook or Instagram & I can then see your art too. Art is such a wonderful thing to share.

      Regards, Caroline Deeble
