As I explore my figurative compositions I love to almost inhabit the figure as it emerges onto the canvas. I am both a dancer and an artist. Which helps me to truly connect with the energy of my subject.
My roots are in Australia where sometimes my figures are morphed with the native flora. The Waratah, a dynamic red flower, which uncurls from it's center, is the floral emblem for Australia. In some of my compositions I have made this my symbol for the head of my figures. Birds always represent spirit & freedom in my paintings.
