Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Large canvas art "Moonlit Waters" is looking through the coral at the Moon light shinning through.

This image represents the results of mixing media, with chemistry between pigments creating dynamic compositions as they attract and repel, resulting in formations I manipulate to be of ocean, shore line, rocks, and or reef like impressions. In addition to paint brushes, I use my hands, air guns, rods, blow torch, and gravity.

It feels like I’m a sculptor more than a painter sometimes. The texture is the reef, rocks or land mass, the water is the liquid paint, the water spray bottle is the force of nature like rain, the hairdryer is the wind, the blowtorch is the sun, the gravity (tilting the board this way and that) is the tide.

A very multi directional piece, that has been printed with
environmentally friendly water-based Latex inks that have an indoor lifespan of around 80 years.
Strong poly-cotton canvas that’s tear and water resistant.
Signed and numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

Other sizes available on request.

Packed and rolled in a tube and delivered by courier.

I absolutely love being an artist, I work my craft full time. Thank you for your interest in my work!

Artist Profile

Thank you for your interest in my work.
I paint every day, creating abstract mixed media works inspired by the waters of the Great Barrier Reef around me. I have evolved into a full time artist, self-taught. I rarely follow conventional art methods and have developed a technique of my own.
This series of works is a collection of images from my original paintings. They represents the results of mixing media, with chemistry between pigments creating dynamic compositions as they attract and repel, resulting in interesting intricate formations.
My work was selected to be featured on the Australian TV show “The Block”, as well as "House Rules" which has given my work wide exposure in Australia and beyond. I was also recently awarded Art Lovers Australia’s 2020 People’s Choice Prize for my piece “Ashore.”
