Why Spend With Us?
I live in a tiny hamlet just outside Ballarat Victoria. My studio has a lovely bush garden outlook, an inspiration at the best and worst of times. The world challenges of COVID- 19 for everyone meant personally, I lost my regular employment. To make ends meet and for my sanity, I rediscovered my old tools, paint brushes and canvasses and started to explore my old passions.
I am a dabbler in everything. Learning is my passion. As I have learned so I have been able to merge lots of my skills into my artwork. I have no formal qualifications as such but have attended many, many workshops and retreats to learn everything I can, from hot glass, to textiles and painting. I create what I love and have a passion for.
Presently, my paintings are a revisit to times of old in my life and a change of pace from textiles and sculpture. The luscious subject matter , colour and size of the canvasses in this current series of work is such a welcome change from the monochromatic tiny sculptures I have been immersed in over the last three years. Flying blind , painting images that excite me is what I love.
I enjoy especially creating commissioned work and the challenges it presents as well as meeting my customers either personally or by messenger or my website.
All paintings, unless stated in the description, do not have frames provided with them. Each painting will be securely packaged and sent to your nominated address once payment has been received.
All sculptures come to you safely packaged in a box. They are not intended as play items but should be displayed preferably behind glass . Each sculpture is made from found items. Those items are sometimes old and marked which gives the sculpture additional character. Where possible, new components are not used. Those mounted on a wood base, have a variety of components added, such as those pictured here.
