Find me a various markets around the Hobart Region.
Painting excites me, brings happiness and colour to my life.
My interest in Art began in primary school when we had to draw a Lion. I remember being totally absorbed in this task. At the time I didn't think much of it but looking back that was the first time I remember painting.
I use Watercolour paint for my paintings. I have played with other mediums and always end up being drawn back to Watercolour. I love the way the medium and water react together to create a flowing motion. I am self taught and for the past 17 years it has become my main interest and focus.
My painting style is loose. I love painting animals, birds especially as I love the various colour that can be achieved. I try to create the subject personality in my paintings, especially the facial expression and demeanor. I usually start my paintings with the darker colours, mostly the eyes which gives me a focal point. Then I work through the body to complement the facial expression and character.
For me painting is exciting, relaxing and creative. It allows me to be totally absorbed in my subject to create Watercolour Art I can be proud of.
