Art, Identity & Place

How wild places, deep time and archaeology inform my contemporary art process

3 Large Oil Paintings

These paintings were completed before and during the GFC and so they spent the last few years in my storage bunker. Time to dust them off and freshen up the edges.

I have been producing oil paintings, mixed media, prints (etching), digital prints and drawings for many years travelling to the Australian outback and overseas for inspiration and further education. My formal education consists of a PhD in painting and a BA in printmaking and my artwork is represented in public and private collections. My purpose and ongoing challenge is to create a gender-balanced and environment-focused iconography within the Western canon of European oil painting. These themes find expression within imagery about time, memory and identity as well as in geomorphology of evolutionary and environmental significance.
