I was lucky to grow up by and, most of the time, in the sea. So much so, that I think I have brine for blood and salty bones. The echoes of the sea are never far. And now living in the city, I do miss being so close to the rugged southern coast. It does remain a constant source for inspiration and healing for me. My message is always be kind to the ocean and to the delicate world around you.

…. Is something hiding in there beneath the layers. What was that little thing that just moved.

I am constantly fascinated by the layers and colours found in sea-life and rockpools. And the ability of creatures to camouflage into their surrounds for survival…. either to escape prey or become predators themselves. Masterful disguises and the perfect artists!

‘Bio-Cluster Tideline Dwellers III’ belongs to my ‘Aqua Vitae’ Series, inspired by microscopic other worlds and aquatic wonderlands. Particularly cell growth, minuscule amoebas, plant life and of course, as I grew up by the sea, I can never escape the otherworldliness of underwater sea life such as coral, algae blooms and seaweed growth. The shapes I have used and their arrangement are intended to form visual intrigue moving in and out of focus and relating to our memories of things in nature.

Ultimately the paintings are about our sense of awe and wonder at nature and the miraculous building blocks of all life.

The basically monochrome palette reflects nature and is inspired by the mini-worlds discovered in rock pools and coral reefs in particular to the Basalt beaches around the southern coast of Australia where I grew up and spend a lot of my time. In my dreams and memories, the black basalt rocks of these beaches create a sharp contrast to the barnacle growths and wildly coloured algae and seaweeds of the area. The luminous greens and blues add to the otherworldly glow and relate to the many different species and forms of sea-life in rock-pools and reefs.

What I enjoy most about my paintings is they make people smile with a sense of wonderment and feelings of happiness as well as giving their walls intrigue and interest for years to come.
