Exhale at the Ocean
I have worked at Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick for almost thirty years as a physiotherapist.
I value the relationships I have formed here and admire the incredible work of my colleagues. I feel great satisfaction in making a child’s journey through their illness or injury a little easier with kindness, compassion, and collaboration.
I have always enjoyed visits to art galleries and have been inspired by the work of many established and emerging artists. I have never been formally trained as a painter but discovered the joy of putting paint to canvas when I had an empty wall above my fireplace and saw an opportunity to be creative. Since that day 15 years ago, I have enjoyed exploring how to capture light and movement on canvas. The process of painting gives me almost as much joy as the finished work.
The ocean has long been a source of inspiration for me. The constant movement of water makes me feel both energised and calmed.
This collection of paintings are acrylic works on canvas, and capture different experiences I have had in, on or near the ocean. I try to capture the light, movement, and texture of the ocean in a suggestive and abstract way. I also enjoy the play between the sea and the sky.
I like to portray the interactions in nature I experience through being lucky enough to live close to our beautiful eastern suburb beaches.
