I am a Melbourne born artist based on the Bellarine Peninsula. My influences come from the natural environment. The interaction between pattern, colour and light inspires my work. I enjoy working with a range of media including watercolour, gouache, ink, acrylic and water mixable oil paint.

Late in the afternoon the sun was just setting. There was just enough light to make the dried stalks stand out against the shaded water.

These beautiful salmon pink and bluish silver fish are in Port Phillip Bay, particularly around Corio Bay. There numbers are slowly increasing because most of the commercial fishing has been stopped and the stocks are slowly recovering.
