I am an emerging artist from Albury NSW. I have worked in many mediums - acrylic painting, water colour painting, sculpture, print making and more recently oil painting - but my main passion is coloured pencil and graphite pencil drawing. I have experimented with loose and abstract styles; however, I am driven by up-close, tight and realistic drawing. I am inspired by the ordinary, the obvious and the overlooked. When was the last time you went for a walk and really looked at the colours and textures around you? Really listened to the silence? Do you spend your days looking out at the horizon, wishing your life away and wondering what is out there for you? My intent is to encourage you to look closer at your own environment - the here and now, down at your feet or just in front of you - to appreciate and be content with what Mother Nature has produced.
