This painting was done in Spring 2021 in my Launceston studio. Painting is a way for me to express myself and my connection and understandings of/with the world. I live in Tasmanian and spend a lot of time walking, sitting and ‘being’ in both urban and bush areas. I paint intuitively, as a response to the environment I live in, from the perspective that I am inseparable from it. My paintings are composed of layers of, often intricate, overlapping and interlocking forms and colours. The paintings capture my connection with the environment I live ‘in’ and with.
