    In August 2023 I presented two new bodies of work in a solo show TRANSITIONS at Zig Zag Gallery, Kalamunda from

    This exhibition celebrated my love of painting, printmaking and the West Australian bush which provides me with the inspiration to create my work.
    To date my previous exhibitions have mainly comprised of my paintings, in contrast this show was equally split between showcasing my acrylic paintings and my monotype prints. In addition to this I had a wall of accordion plein air sketchbooks on display documenting my time outside in nature and provided a direct insight into the process behind my finished pieces.

    The paintings in this exhibition are about how I experience place when passing through on foot. When walking through a landscape time passes slowly, my paintings are not of a particular view or snapshot of time but rather an accumulation of different viewpoints, experiences and times of day. They are of place in an all encompassing way, when painting a place I am delving into visual memories of the near and the far, what is in front and what is behind, the flowers I saw at my feet and the rocks I passed 5 kilometres before. I am trying to say a lot in one painting - each painting is a token of my appreciation and wonder of place. The work is made in response to places I have returned to time and time again, especially those on the Bibbulmun Track

    My prints are original monotypes. A monotype is a one of a kind print, a print that cannot be reinked and repeated. Some of the prints in this show are collages, made up of cut and torn papers that I have hand printed and then reassembled to recreate the magical world that I feel I inhabit when being surrounded by trees. Many of the prints are in direct response to Monkey Rock in Denmark. On this beautiful cluster of Granite boulders, leaves drift down from ancient Karri trees and land on fallen trunks that decompose slowly in the damp earth. This place is timeless to me which is why I have titled two of the prints In Between Trees and Outside of Time.
