STATEMENT

My work explores connectedness and the beautiful fragility of life. The pieces reflect a childhood very rich in family warmth under the Australian sun, stories encountered across countries in adult life, and a desire for more reflection on the place of humans within nature.

My main body of work is bright and dark acrylics on small portable wood panels, developed during 20 years at home in three continents. Increasingly I also produce large watercolors on paper, which means one chance in each layer of paint, and sculptures, in order to play with viewers from all perspectives.
