God of Fire 2018
Acrylic on Linen, 70 x 140 cm, $4,000


The natural environment has a significant influence on my work – how we as individual beings perceive our own unique experience of it is always of great fascination and interest…
Dear Art Lovers, 

As I write this the sun beams through the window after a very cold start to the morning.  We can finally peel off our coats though continue to throw red gum on the fire.  Spring has arrived! 

The studio has been extremely busy with the coming and going of paintings... I've said goodbye to Outback Rhythm 2016, Matchsticks 1 & Matchsticks 2 2014, Leap of Faith - Ode to Olsen 2018, Ice Breaker 2013, and will soon arrange delivery for Organised Chaos 2008 which exhibited in New York way back in 2009.

I've also launched myself (literally) into a new body of work, the painting above God of Fire 2018 is one of the first dry enough to sit upright.  As many of you know I work looking downwards 'on the floor' and throw paint in numerous abstract layers.  I came to find Abstract Expressionism / Action Painting many years ago during a Diploma of Art in Ceramics where I would drip and pour glazes freely onto the dry surface for varying effects.

I took this a step further during studies in Transpersonal Art Therapy and used similar techniques to express and impress myself upon the canvas.  Later on in life whilst completing my Masters of Contemporary Art, I learnt (through injury) that I have an unusual condition 'Thoracic Outlet Syndrome' (skeletal) which made complete sense as to why I naturally gravitate to physically working in this style...

Jackson Pollock is often mentioned by beholders who study the work and have no idea of my background, though of course I came to find Pollock for myself along the way.  I will never forget standing on the paint splattered boards in his studio at the Pollock-Krasner House and feeling his presence xxx
The image above was taken by photographer Russell Monson who happened to pop into the studio more recently.  Generally it's just me and my old dog 'Tess' but I do look forward to greeting more visitors very soon.  I've agreed to be a 'destination point' for a new and exciting venture Into The Country Tours, so if you're interested in Art, Design, Lunch and Bubbles simply click on the link provided for more details!

On the colder mornings of late I've taken the time to refresh my website.  As a Multidisciplinary Artist with so many projects on the go I felt it had become visually confusing and in desperate need of a revamp!  I've now divided 'Series of Work' which includes Public Art and Installation, and works 'Available to Purchase'.  Hopefully you find it both easy to navigate and an exciting experience.  Click on the button below to check it out...
On the subject of revamping, I was recently invited to the launch of the Baw Baw Shire Council Economic Development Strategy which included the viewing of another refreshed website Visit Baw Baw Closer Than You Think, and I was reminded of how fortunate I am to live and work within such a beautiful landscape, surrounded by green rolling hills and in coowee of the natural wilderness.  I flicked through the Baw Baw Official Visitor Guide and felt quite excited to be included.  Local attractions include National and State Parks, Trestle Bridges, Gourmet Produce, Picturesque Vineyards, Luxurious Accommodation, Museums and Galleries... the list goes on!  Please feel welcome to collect a copy from the studio...

Pilgrim Creek Studios is also within coowee of Melbourne.  We are only 1 hour from EastLink and feature on Google Maps!  Easy to find and just minutes from Warragul.  The studios are 'Open by Appointment' and either myself or resident artist Judi Money are generally available to show you through.  We also look forward to opening the doors again for Open Studios West Gippsland on the 24th & 25th of November!   Stay tuned for more information...
