Artist statement

I have a particular passion for drawing and painting the human figure in complicated compositions. I have a strong affinity for women's issues, current and historical. My work can be described as classic realism, if it has to be categorised, with paintings that are slow to produce, constructed with multiple layers to create an illusion of light and form. It is important for me to create work that invokes feeling in the  viewer, as the art culture of today has been impoverished by the rejection of beauty, choosing soulless, deformed images that leave the viewer feeling empty.

I currently work from one of five studios in a heritage piggery in the Piggery Lane Studios/Gallery at the University of Western Sydney, Richmond Campus.  

I love travelling and have visited many of Europe's great art museums. My other passion is sailing/working on old sailing ships.
