South Austrlian artist inspired by the natural world - creating art that depicts an interpretive style:
celebrating pattern, colour, flora and fauna.

<p>:: the wildflower walk ::</p>

<p>just finished this painting - the bold and robust purple swamphen with its dusky blacks, dark blues and purple feathers - perfect for pattern inspiration!! often seen wandering through the reeds, vegetation and wildflowers on the edges of the water … I see many of these during my visits to the Lower Murray region South Australia</p>
