Welcome to Studio 44, where you will find an unusual blend of contemporary, spiritual and abstract art designed to speak the stories into visual format. My passion is paint and creating a story, not just selling you an image. My work spans decades of travel in Australia and also recent years in Mercury Bay having moved here 3 years ago to deliberately create the step change I was looking for. While still strongly connected to the energy and vibration of Australia, my more recent work is now emerging with a style of its own, cultivated and honed by my work as a local art teacher and mentor.
I love working on canvas and ply, recycled flooring, or anything else that speaks to me with a story to be created, and you will regularly find me teaching groups, hosting private client for their own viewing and discussions about their projects or leading a group of complete novices through some foundation skills to get them started.
The work this year has a very powerful sense of colour and brightness to it and is a complete contrast to last years black and white series.
The 2020/2021Summer workshop programme will soon be posted on my website –
"Often described as raw, vibrant and full of energy, the work ranges from small working samples to large abstract wall canvases capturing different aspects of conscious and sub conscious thoughts, feelings and interpretations of life around us.
Every piece is original, hand crafted and created with love through a combination of acrylic, water colour, mixed media, brush, palette knife and a vast array of other tools and techniques. My clients love the energy and the stories of the pieces ultimately adding their own interpretation to the work"
