Family  1.25x95 cms. Acrylics on canvas  Framed ready to hang. $1200 

As families, we belong together, but we are each individuals. 
This piece celebrates our differences reflected as the varied
 typography of each letter in the cohesive unit of the word, family. 

The palette captures the dynamics of family as it grows and changes with time.
The sunlit memories and golden moments of milestones and laughter; the passion
of loves come and gone, the heated flashes of anger when we lose control;
and the light and shade within all of us.

Some days our letters are haggard, some days they're bright and bold, 
and some days they're somewhere in between. 
But together we support each other, each of us a different
but essential part of family.

Thank you to Aprill Enright Allen for assisting in writing this artist statement which in prose expresses perfectly what I wanted to create visually.

A Happy Bunch - 30x20cms. Acrylic on canvas 

Roses can say so much. I bought this little bunch of happiness for the dinner table of my dear host Angela in Hamburg where I was visiting and staying recently. While there, I was inspired to paint, to try and capture their stunning colour combination. 
One travel memory I won't forget.  (NFS-Gifted)

How gorgeous is our model we all enjoyed sketching last week at Gallery 57!!!

After sketching Benedicte in pencil a few times, I was so excited to use my pastels on yellow textured paper. 

Wow, that hair was wild, fabulous !!

Cronulla Walks - 30x40 cm. Acrylics and oil on canvas board. NFS

The gift of a painting can immortalise memories and remind you daily of the good times. How special it was for me to paint this for a friend, who's walks on the beach with her besties, can now be a happy reminder every time she views it.

Inspired by our beautiful local water ways and the colour and movement of sailing boats often seen, this little painting I completed at our monthly Saturday art day last week. Might be appropriate to enter in the Drummoyne Art society's members exhibition in September.
