The inspiration for my exhibition comes from the beauty of our vast Australian landscape.

My artwork is an attempt to capture a deeper meaning and spirit which comes with my connection to this land. I have developed a great interest in the naturally occurring and manmade patterns and designs and represent the organic landscape with layers of textured paint, pattern and colour.

Occupance- The Inevitable Landscape, arose from a connection between two artists who wanted to convey their individual style and interpretation of how our land can quickly be transformed from pristine and remote to the over development of urban sprawl, within a short space of time. This is our inevitable landscape.

However, there is also the uncanny ability for nature to re-consume what has been taken away or left unattended and transform itself back to its former state of being. This is the inevitable process in the circle of life as Mother Nature slowly but surely takes her course.
