“Heart Song” Digital Art, 60cm x 60cm

 

I looked for the movement and song in paintings and experimented with my own art. I loved the dancers in Degas’ paintings.

“Nostalgia” Digital Art, 50cm x 70cm

 

I tried oils and watercolour, then moved onto digital art. It provides me with a way to use design and placement in my art that feels right to me.

“Reclamation” Digital Art, 60cm x 40cm

 

I’ve always felt a flow of music in nature, like a symphony. As a digital artist, I enjoy creating a mix of fine, abstract and fantasy art.

“Story Teller” Digital Art, 60cm x 60cm

 

As shown by the breaking dawn and the advent of life, we see that nature has the power to uplift and inspire. Nature’s story is preserved and retold in narratives, theatre and travelling shows of old. It is a way of understanding our place in the world.

“Symphony” Digital Art, 40cm x 65cm

 

The Botanic Gardens in Adelaide is my favourite place to visit. It is a place of fantasy and imagination, complete with hidden spaces, needle pines, the lily pond, and its intriguing night flower propagation. They have a hall where specimens are kept, as well as books of intrepid explorers and their first drawings.

“Soul Journey” Digital Art, 50cm x 70cm

 

Fauna and flora. New and ancient lands. Our bond with nature is now being challenged as we battle environmental changes. I am interested in preserving the history and rituals of our world, its myths and how they have shaped us.

“Sanctuary” Digital Art, 50cm x 70cm

 

In much of my artwork, I try to express how I feel about what is happening. I’m interested in preserving the history and rituals of our world, its myths and how they have shaped us. I want to hopefully create something intense and moving that will uplift the viewer and re-establish our link with our roots and the nurturing of the land.
