With the Olympics starting in Japan it seems somehow fitting that my new additions to the Variegated collection ended up working so beautifully with Japandi decor style currently becoming very popular around the globe.
Several paintings have been released as part of my Variegated collection looking at organic patterns found at the microscopic level in leaves. Using a soft white wax over board allows for the beautiful natural wood grain to show through. Finished on top with white detail and a scattering of cut paper in a mix of metallics and neutral tones.
The calm, muted colours, focus on natural materials and organic shapes creates a Japandi style aesthetic. Japandi being a hybrid of Japanese and Scandinavian design, zen meets hygge if you like. At the heart of these works is the idea of embracing simplicity and celebrating the beauty of imperfections in nature, a core belief of wabi-sabi.

A happy, bright and bubbly start to the year with my first collection for 2021 - Beach Bubbles. Lots of lovely colourful works inspired by the beach and waves, the ocean and sand. Deep blues, soft pinks and some beautiful pops of turquoise.
As 2020 comes to an end I took a look back at some of my favourite works from the year and gave them a kaleidoscopic twist for a brand new print collection.
There are seven new mandala art limited edition prints to choose from ranging from a little 8x8inch piece all the way up to 100x100cm. There are also now options for canvas printing and framing.
Kaleidoscopic forms have been part of my art practice for many years now. The fine veil of dots that I see as part of my neuro-ophthalmologcal condition appear as a kaleidoscope of constantly moving pattern. I've always been drawn to mandala type images and symmetrical patterns.
Celebrating summer with a brand new collection of limited edition prints - kaleidoscopic twists on some of my favourite paintings from this year. Apart from a few sizes options and either paper or stretched canvas, the artworks are also available on beautiful lightweight summer scarves.
Lovely and soft, made in Australia and a big 140x140cm! A great Christmas gift idea.
I've been continuing to create abstract landscapes pieces suggestive of fields seen from the air, or topographical maps, using the language of lines and dashes I've been building up in my work. Four new paintings have been recently released in this body of work.
Unyielding I and II, shown above, have sold but please contact me if you would like to discuss a commission.
This new collection is inspired by outback desert landscapes seen from the air, the scattering of vegetation is a combination of paint and embroidery.
The Australian outback is a rich tapestry of changing colours and patterns. Tiny dots of vegetation, wild flowers and shrubs, come and go or alter in shade with the seasons.
I'm always excited to hear the pick for Pantone Color of the Year, must be the designer in me, but I was particularly excited this morning to find they chose Living Coral. Perfect timing to introduce my current collection of coral themed artwork.

So if you're looking for a little living coral art please check out the available originals sections of the website. Beyond the Shallows available exclusively via Art Lovers Australia.
