Australian Flora and Fauna Artwork

Stone the Crows

The devastating bush fires of January 2020 bought back memories of a wonderful break we enjoyed in the north eastern highlands of Victoria many years ago. 

We enjoyed a driving holiday around the area; the vistas were beautiful and majestic and everything was lush and green, it was such a wonderful part of Australia.

Using bits of memory and photos taken whilst exploring in the area, I settled on a scene of this stunning tree with an awe-inspiring vista of rolling hills beyond. I particularly remember loud raucous crows making themselves heard whilst we were enjoying the view.

I feel this painting encapsulates our memory of the day we stopped for a break to admire this beautiful tree.  I also hope that this particular tree has survived the horrific bush fires.

To the Sea

I live on the coast and am besotted with the majesty and beauty of the ocean.

White sand and sparkling blue water on a sunny day is my idea of heaven.

I have painted a quiet and glorious place where a lazy creek flows into the sea.

Not a soul in sight, just nature in all its glory.

Track to nowhere

My aim as an artist is to make the viewer experience an emotional response to my work. 

Our life is like a journey which seems to follow a designated track leading to unknown destinations. Sometimes we take detours off the track, other times it seems to be leading around us into unknown places.

This image is one of uncertainty.  It is set in an Australian landscape where a seldom used railway line is leading us to where?

Where is life taking us?

Where does our journey take us
