Forest walk

mixed media on paper

Migrating to Western Australia in 1984, I was captivated by the rugged beauty and diversity of the landscape. “Forest Walk” is a work inspired by the majesty of the Boranup Forest. I am primarily attracted to shapes of colour, dark and light, texture and the spaces created between and around subjects. My mixed media process involves using a variety of paper, inks and acrylic to form rich layers which are then drawn onto with charcoal and ink.
