  • Artist’s Statement

    My main interest is photographing the landscape but recently I have ventured into the abstract world along with infra red and the use of the ‘Orton’ effect. This allows me to concentrate more on what I ‘see’ rather than on the technical aspect of photography. Unable to use a painter’s brush to capture the colours and moods of these moments in time, I use a digital camera. Beauty, colour, mood and light are my friends. The quietness and being in one with nature draws me in.

  • Biography

    I am a past Downlands student.
    I am a self taught photographer, situated in Highfields just outside of Toowoomba. Life for me is about my family, helping others when I can, my photography and my Mini. The Darling Downs provides a beautiful backdrop for some of my work.
    It seems I have always had a camera in my hand.
    I take photos of sport, architecture, landscape, people (sometimes), travel and abstract ‘things’. My camera is my ‘paint brush’.

  • Influences

    The biggest influences in my photographic journey are painters like Albert Namatjira, Sydney Nolan, Pro Hart and my Great Aunt’s.
    I have explored the works of impressionistic artist like Claude Monet, Edgar Degas and Pierre-Auguste Renoir, who have influenced my move into abstract and impressionism using intentional camera movement (ICM) and multiple exposure to achieve this look.
    Photographers Michael Kenna, Graham Burstow, Chris Friel, Deborah Sheedy, Ellen Jantzen and Ernest Hass.
