I’m a Sydney based artist, working with watercolour and coloured inks on paper.
My work is semi-abstract, often intricate and patchwork-like, focussed on blending pattern and design with the free-flowing spontaneity and fluidity of watercolour.
I usually paint freely, pouring, splashing, dripping paint and applying washes, resists, masks and other techniques to create texture, shape and form, letting the medium take over as the colours begin to blend and textural effects appear as the paint dries. As the painting progresses, I respond with detail and tighter control.
All my collage work is created using specially prepared or recycled watercolour paintings.
