Ocean and Water Art

The colour of the sea, where it meets the land

I love water – I always have. It is always changing and reflects the environment.

I live by Sydney Harbour and I see it every day. I experience its moods and charms. I can waste hours watching it. I lose track of time. Most holidays are to either our beach house or somewhere else where there is water. My favourite time is January where every day I walk the same beach morning and night. And every time I walk it – it is different. The intersection between water and land, wet and dry, liquid and solid I find endlessly curious. My studio has an aspect to the harbour which delivers its own unique qualities.

Inspiration for my paintings

They all have a story – I see something and re-imagine it in paint.

Water, ocean, seas, rivers, even swimming pools and ponds. When ever I see any body of water I am drawn to it. I am lucky to live by the water and can commute to the city by ferry. I do my best to stay present and absorb the colours, light, textures and sound of the water. My earliest explorations into big paintings were of the ocean. I wanted to bring its vastness inside. I wanted to hold it and capture it. This is what I have set out to do.
