My art is inspired by the rich fauna of my surroundings. My Art is produced between the realm of memory and the realm of experience, directly responding to the surrounding environment and everyday experiences with nature as a starting point. Often these are framed instances which would go unnoticed in their original context. In my surrealism work I can easily imagine my own interpretation without being hindered by the reality. I was recently showcased on the TV series “Colour in your Life” and in 2018 I won an Editorial as Featured Artist in the English Hidden Treasures Coloured Pencils Art Magazine England. I have received a number of awards, including First in Mental Health Art Exhibition Wimmera Uniting Care Horsham in 2016, Highly Commended in Blues & Hues Art Show in 2006, Highly Commended for Aussie Nature in Art show in International Art show India in 2013 and Commended in Cancer Council Art Show in 2015. I chose the wrens because they are a part of my garden, and although they are small in stature, they are resilient beyond their size and will often fight off opposition that seem impossible odds. I feel they are a wonderful metaphor for life. Don’t let the size of the problem overwhelm you! Keep at it, determination will get you to your goal.
