The natural environment is my painting obsession as I form connections with my home surrounds and link the way place can create a sense of belonging and connection to nature around. Our new property in The Lockyer Region is a 100 acre old dairy farm with views to the mountains around the scenic rim. After surveying the shapes, textures, colours, patterns of this landscape, I have responded by capturing the essence of the place and surrounding views. My underlying thought while creating the compositions is to encourage the viewer to question their urban environment and rethink their relationship with their natural surroundings.
