This picture was once again inspired by the big long road trip holiday to South Africa back in 2012. It was such a good holiday, and the landscapes were so inspiring! I would go back there in heartbeat. I had such fun painting outside looking up at the impressive Cederberg mountain range.
This picture was made once back in Australia and reflecting on the time spent in South Africa. Such a great time!
It seems that I get a lot of inspiration for artworks from holidays I have been on, and those amazing landscapes that you can see.
This work was created after the first time I went to Kakadu. My sister moved to Darwin to study her PhD, and I was lucky enough to visit her in the Northern Territory. We went on an incredible trip to Kakadu and out on a boat across Yellow Waters. This artwork was inspired by the amazing sunset and view there.

This watercolour was made in 2012. It was exhibited at my solo exhibition Hidden, Unseen, Unknown in October 2013. I have created this jellyfish using delicate watercolour brush marks, representing the ephemeral aspects of this animal. Without directly representing water, one can imagine the sea swirling around this creature. The ocean is still a place of wonder and awe, full of creatures like these. It continues to hold many secrets.
Searching was created for my solo exhibition Hidden, Unseen, Unknown in October of 2013. This watercolour on rag paper portrays a creature that dwells beneath the waves in an unknown sea of blue. The jellyfish is floating, looming from a predominantly unseen world.
This watercolour made in 2011 was displayed at the Kingston Arts Centre G3 Artspace as part of my solo exhibition Hidden, Unseen, Unknown in October 2013. This exhibition included 26 artworks spanning the last five years of my career. You can read some reviews of the exhibition by going to the links section.
