Superb Fairy Blue Wren $380

I loved painting this gorgeous little bird. I was determined to achieve the fluffy feathery effect on his body and have to say it took a while, each brush stroke very deliberately placed. He is a beauty and would be delightful as a centerpiece on a wall in a room given his size and colour. 
He comes to you with a certificate of authenticity and is registered with the National Registry of Australian Art and Artists.

The three egg nest $1240

Acrylic on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

120cm (W) x 104cm (H) x 4cm (D)

Signed certificate of authenticity.

This large hexagonal canvas is very versatile for hanging. You choose which angle you like.

Gerda Lipski is a German painter who experiments with wonderful texture. I am inspired by her techniques to play and so the nest became the beginning of the story .

It progressed from there with the appearance of three dark blue eggs, speckled with brown, white and real gold leaf, all of which sit slightly raised off the canvas.

The colours are reminiscent of medieval images and the entire hue has an antique feel to it because of the raw umber , green blemishes and the blue of the eggs.


Note- given the small house I live in, I struggled to find a wall big enough to photograph such a large canvas it on, so its been staged in mock rooms. It would be truly dramatic on a large wall, in an office or somewhere earthy.

My sister's bouquet $1200

50.8cm (W) x 76.2cm (H) x 4cm (D)

Acrylic on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed certificate of authenticity.

A chance photograph of my sister's birthday bouquet in a restaurant, was the inspiration to paint this beautiful study of Australian wild flowers. It is a "wow" painting in a room, a bit like one colourful ,stunning piece of jewellery against a simple black dress.
I adore colour and set out to hypercolour the image, to its maximum. It became a labour of love with the detail.

 

 

Jolies fleurs- Pretty Flowers $350

Jolies fleurs- Pretty Flowers

30cm (W) x 38cm (H) x 7cm (D)
Acrylic on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed on the front.

This artwork comes with an external frame

I call this method "intuitive" with a bit of negative painting thrown in to reveal the subject.

I start with a canvas full of paint , blobs and texture that I create freehand. The challenge is to see what's in the patterns.
I admit to dreaming of vases of Spring flowers in France with this one and so the name " Jolies fleurs- Pretty Flowers".
Its perfect anywhere you want a flourish of Spring flowers really, a baby's room, bathroom, any corner crying out for a breath of Spring.
It comes to you already framed in a timber box frame, which can be stood on its own or hung on a wall.
 

     

  

Alice $680

 

58cm (W) x 58cm (H) x 5cm (D)

Acrylic on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed on the front.

This artwork comes with an external frame

Party cat outlook- she is actually a cat I own.

I live in a mudbrick home and caught her lazily gazing out the window at the right time. It was a quiet moment for an otherwise very happy, party animal.

I have noticed since I painted her that her markings are very common..maybe the same as a cat you own or have owned. I was aiming for a storybook of old style and of course I love colour...even when its not there, I like to put it in my paintings.

I have also included a short Youtube video of a quick stroll around the painting for you.

It is mounted in a black semi gloss wooden frame for added impact.
I am very happy to paint your precious, furry friend as well, on commission in this style, so please contact me if you are interested.

 

 

 

Lady Oakey $580

50.8cm (W) x 50.8cm (H) x 5.5cm (D)

Acrylic on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed on the back.

I was engaged in deep discussion at the table with my sister and Lady Oakey popped up and joined into the conversation. I have a deep affection for hens and roosters, especially the beautiful colours of their feathers and the curve of their silhouette.
I decided to push out the colours to a greater degree to reflect the beautiful colours in sunlight. There is a definite impressionist influence with this one and I enjoyed painting her immensely.

 

 

Bobby $580

51cm (W) x 51cm (H) x 4cm (D)

 

Acrylic on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed on the front.

I love painting portraiture of creatures I know. This is Bobby a well-loved dog who is now in his senior years.

Acrylic Paint on canvas, stretched and ready to hang in beech wood frame

Signed on the back.

If you have lucky to visit Giverny , France and see Monet's garden you will know that the driveway there is literally awash with nasturtiums. Its huge and very dramatic. This canvas is a small snippet. It is mounted into a sealed pine box frame which can be removed easily if you prefer.

Inverloch stones $400

Inverloch stones $400

Acrylic Paint on canvas, stretched and ready to hang. 50.5cm (W) x 91.5cm (H) x 3.5cm (D)

Inverloch in Victoria is a very special place in my heart. Its the place of dinosaur bones, wild ocean and many, many rocks. I built this small pile when I was last there, learning to snorkel.

The image is currently carried over onto the sides , but this painting would look just as beautiful in a natural wood box frame.

 

 

 

 

  

She sold all the sea shells from the sea shore $300

She sold all the sea shells from the sea shore $300

55cm (W) x 55cm (H) x 4cm (D)

Acrylic on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed on the front.

This piece was created using Isopropyl alcohol and acrylic paint. As each layer of paint was put down, isopropyl alcohol was sprinkled which pushed the paint away to reveal colours underneath. This painting has 6 glazed layers to it and a final layer where it is finessed using floated colour, to create shapes and definition.
Its essentially a very fresh piece and would look beautiful in a baby's room, an ocean themed room, or bathroom. Anywhere you would like a touch of a sea breeze.

 

       

 

 

 

Look up - Autumn in Ballarat $750

Look up - Autumn in Ballarat $750

Acrylic Paint, Ready to hang
80cm (W) x 80cm (H) x 4cm (D)
Signed on the front.

I love Impressionist Art and the exploration of light. I also adore colour and just couldn't go past this giant tree. I stood under its canopy and sighed. Ballarat has beautiful gardens and many huge trees. The tree was big so the painting had to be too. It's fresh colourful and would make a beautiful statement on a wall, a bit like jewellery against a plain dress.

 

 

 

 

Citrouille-pumpkin - $530.00

 

66 cm x 66 cm x4 cm
Acrylic Paint on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Currently only available as a VIP listing on Bluethumb.
I love the roundness of fruit and vegetables and their colour. Pumpkins and figs are a favourite of mine because of that. This painting would just liven a plain room, or adorn a country kitchen. Its heavy with colour and texture and designed to make your wall literally "pop"!!
While in France for a while, the markets were full of beautiful pumpkins, and in the US, they are a gorgeous decoration for Thanksgiving on country folks porches. They are familiar and represent to me, Autumn, warmth and fertility.

Roman Summer $500.00

 

Acrylic Paint, Ready to hang
65cm (W) x 65cm (H) x 5cm (D)

I love all things Roman and the paintings of the Renaissance and this piece encompasses just that, to me. Painting round objects and creating a lusciousness with light and dark is so enjoyable. Every painting should have an interesting background. For me is makes me wonder what else is happening in the background...life goes on around the subject.

Universal Bath $980- March 2024 special $750

 

Acrylic, Framed
78cm (W) x 78cm (H) x 6cm (D)

Method used is about creating texture, light, dark and colour in a random way, only to then use the shapes, shadows and light to guide some order, something that is captivating to the eye.

This painting started to feel like something you would see under a microscope or alternatively, in space as it grew. Thus its name.

Some of the method , such as using rubbing alcohol, and creating images from random patterns has been done by Gerda Lipski , a wonderful German painter, who seemingly creates beauty from the chaos she has created in varying ways.

Universal bath is highly coloured, vibrant, dramatic and created without using any black paint. Something I am currently motivated to try.

I have not signed the piece on the front as I could not decide on what was a bottom section . I wanted that left to whoever decided to own it.

It is however signed on the back and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
