Purple Clouds

Oil paintings of the Strathbogie Ranges

I grew up in the country on a farm in the Strathbogie Ranges, Victoria. I moved away and did the university thing, studied Fine Art in Melbourne and then from there I moved to Western Australia in my late twenties. I always loved the Strathbogie landscape. I knew I’d return one day.

So really it’s about the place for me. The connection, the feeling of what I see around me, the familiarity of the landscape, the incredible beauty, the changeability of the light, shadows, weather and seasons. They are all a never-ending source of inspiration.

It’s not the subject so much, it’s what you add to it, the memory, the way you feel about it, your sense of belonging.

For me painting the landscape is about capturing that moment in time - a tree in the night, a row of pine trees, blue hills, evening light, shadows cast by trees along an empty road and juicy clouds.

The majority of my artwork is in oil paint but I also like to draw and create little collages.
