Artist Statement

My paintings have evolved into landscapes of symbols collected from direct observations of nature, and from specific memories of my childhood in Tasmania. Weaving through this landscape are images derived from convict carvings on the Ross Bridge in Tasmania.
The paintings, structured with pathways like children’s mazes, lead the viewer to become lost in my landscape, which is populated with plant forms, ships, symbols and ancient heads and shapes. Following the pathways creates a displacement in time and place.
