    “ I DIDN'T COME TO STAY “ *

    I didn’t come to stay but does that mean I can trash the place and leave?
    I’m interested in the disconnect we feel or have created from nature and increasingly from each other. The sense that we bumble along doing whatever we want with little regard for the consequences to the planet and ourselves.

    While my imagery recreates the Australian bush the idea behind the work is the distance I often feel from a true connection to the earth while living in the city and my struggle to find that connection again. Although I have spent a lot of time in lockdown, being surrounded by a pocket of bushland has allowed me to keep my sanity and created inspiration for this body of work.

    The shifting evocative colour of the landscape filters through my consciousness and driven by a physical approach to painting, I aim to try and capture that feeling of movement, sound, heat and light through brushstrokes, colour and texture.
