This painting was inspired by a recent trip to pick up my kids from schoolies. As l drove through Surfers paradise, l realized how encroaching the skyscrapers are to the sandy beaches, the two almost seeming like one giant entity. So my work concept was born.
I wanted to create a landscape where the hustle and bustle of any where in the world where the ocean meets city living is apparent.
I enjoy translating my work through the vigor and candor of colour and intricacy, l think it takes people on a journey of discovery and brings back often childhood memories of holidays by the beach.
Colour brings happiness, and l am highly motivated by colours, l feelings l get when painting or viewing a finished piece, its a real satisfaction.
I will not sell a painting that l don't personally love and would be happy to have it hang on my own wall, l have a deep connection to the paintings l do, they take a considerable amount of time, nurturing, and creativity to complete.
