This painting started with big washes of bright high-pigment colour, followed by layers of neutral brush strokes and details.


I love painting gum trees and foliage - you'll see this throughout most of my portfolio. It represents my complete love for Australian native flora; gum trees, eucalyptus leaves, gum nuts and blossoms in an abstract composition featuring neutral grey, purple, mauve, violet and brown, complemented by bright blue, pink, green and yellow. The contrast is harmonious as well as striking.
