Described as ‘a painter with a camera’ - I ‘see’ the world in a very unique way and this can be seen visually within my photography work.
If I am not in my studio creating, I am in the car driving around allowing anything and everything to capture my passion for art. I get a lot of inspiration for my artwork through my photography. Sometimes it is from what I captured, and others it is just from the journey of looking. Moving from the States to Australia, you can often find me walking along the beach boxes and marinas here on the Mornington Peninsula of Victoria. I especially love walking around in marina storage lots, where I find abandoned, and dis-guarded boats, because I find art. I find things that move me to create in the studio. The pattern peeling paint creates, the vibrant hue of orange from rust, the different shades of green which grow around a slow leak, the texture and look of weathered wood, and the amazing colours that have changed hands over time, not to mention the amazing teal blue water of the bay, all coming together to create an inspiring palette for this artist.
I hope that you find my work every bit as enjoyable to look at, as I did in the journey of finding it.
