Again I find myself championing the underdog. My focus having shifted to plants. In particular,plants that survive extreme conditions. I'm fascinated by their ability to adapt,flourish and bind the earth against all odds. Its how they create environments habitable and beautiful in the most unlikely situations that astounds me.
As a outdoor painter primarily,i'm often found wandering the backroads searching for quiet underachievers. A Dirk Hartog island visit ignited my imagination, the arid west coast perpetuates it.
I find watercolours,gouache and pencil the easiest medium to transport. Coffee my constant companion and somehow the two have blended.
