Jun 1 - Jul 18, 2020

“Although it’s just my opinion I think peonies are the most beautiful and fragrant flower in the world. It is why as an artist that I am so captivated by everything about them and continue to paint them again and again.”
“I’ve spent many years painting so many flowers that the process has become almost like a mantra. Sometimes they appear half dissolved and others fully realized, photo realistic, lush and sensual. Flowers symbolise human enlightenment and serve as brief reminders of the highest aspects of our nature: love and joy.”
“I’m always looking for new blooms. I visit parks, flower markets and neighbourhood gardens. As the seasons change, there is always something new to admire! I live and work from my bushland studio in Sydney.”
“There is an obsession in my work with the ephemeral nature of flowers and how they reflect the transient nature of life. There is also a constant fascination with the transparency of water, and the play of light, colour, temperature and atmosphere that makes up the subject”.
