The first of my snow images

As a regular visiter an admirer of our Alpine Landscape I had collected so many great snow photos.Many of which were photographed in places you just couldnt get to without a set of skis.
  I decided to make it a series of images, these were the first, which ,insidently were the basis for my first exhibition outside Art School, at Faifield Gallery, last December.

Photography, just a piece of paper

Epsom ,Photographic paper 6"x4"      


This painting won the Scolarship for LAS ,at the Casula Powerhouse, the theme was Asia. I researched all I could on China,s domination and destrucction of the Tibetan Landscape and learnt a lot in the process.
Initially I wanted to paint the himalayas,I remember visiting the foot of the himalayas in the 80,s and chillingon the roof of a houseboat, how so much has changed.

More photography, Landscapes

Drawing was always one of my favourite subjects

In this image I combined my husbands KTM motorcross bike with a rose, something harsh ,something soft, natural, constructed, its huge and hangs in his study, he likes it and so do most of his Dirt Bike world friends, its an interesting mix.

Lanscape series

This image is a photograph of the original, the original was sold, and it won the works on paper at the Casula Powerhouse, so I was really pleased.
Inspired by the Queensland artist William  Robinson , who saw everything, morning, night, horizons,foregrounds,midgrounds etc, all at the same time. Its a combination of photography, watercolour, ink ,charchoal, everything, must do more like this.

Just a few favourite portraits
