Painting and Creating Artwork that Champions life on the Great Barrier Reef in 2021

February 03, 2021

2021 is now under way, and I’m pleased to share with you that my first artwork release will be showcasing and championing the Great Barrier Reef.

September 29, 2020

We all have unique histories, points of view, different interests, things that motivate us and things that don’t. There are things that we are enthusiastic and passionate about and let’s face it, we all have dreams too. Together, these things make us who we are, and it’s what makes each one of us truly unique. Sometimes, it’s difficult to express too, but today, I thought I’d introduce you to my painting titled, “Odd Pot” which inspired my collection of paintings called, The Garden Bazaar. It’s an opportunity to learn about the way I approach painting, and what makes me ‘tick’ when it comes to creating a new artwork. And, I hope it adds a great splash of colour to your day.
