Life

2011
Acrylic on canvas

Painted as a celebration of a new arrival. I was thinking about what it is that we wish for when we think about someone at that start of their life. I  quickly realised that this really depends on who you are and what influences you have had during the course of your own life. For the painting I wanted to try and step out of my own narrow life view and think about other approaches to the same question.

So 'Life' is perhaps a collection of possible wishes. Positive messages that you would think of as they begin their journey.

Immersion

2011
Acrylic on canvas
76 X 60 cm

The first wave attempt for the year, with a mixture of detail at the centre and patterning as your eye draws outwards. Still searching to create that image that does justice to this moment in time.

C&R

2010
Acrylic on canvas
100 X 86 cm

One of the most enjoyable paintings that I have been able to create. I enjoyed being asked and then the free hand I was given to create this image. Thank you so much for the opportunity C&R.

Vortex

2010
Oil on canvas
70 X 70 cm

The underside of the wave as it rolls across you creates amazing patterns of light as the air and water mix together. The spiraling water and air creates visual vortexes which are amazing.
