Title: The civility of french earl grey at 4pm was escaping Medium: digital drawing on paper, framed
‘The civility of french earl grey at 4pm was escaping’ presents a scene of inundation, where the wild and the domestic are juxtaposed within the confines of my seaside shacks’ 1970’s interior.

A shack is a permeable structure, the walls are thin, the windows whistle and the separation between inhabitant and the weather feels fragile. There are daily reminders of an active nature and your small place as an emotional human in it. With 'The civilty..' I constructed an image to reflect how nature provides the metaphors and poetry for our internal experiences, alluding to both loss and yearning, and to show my own efforts to balance the constructs of human life with the wildness beyond my door.

My art practice combines the narrative qualities of drawing with digital technology to create visual stories. ‘The civility…’ is one of twenty-four digital drawings within the ‘This Hopeful Shack’ series, where the images and writings combined humour, observation, poetry and mark-making to explore contemporary relationships between people and Nature.

Title: Flay Medium: Ink Drawing on Fabriano Paper
Flay is an exploration of the theme of connection, identity and behaviour, where form and structure is a metaphor for interconnected existences, memory and experience. Repetition of line and movement allow the meditative contemplation of the influential forces in our society, seen and unseen. Flay is a drawing of the artist’s experience of one’s place in the world, ever changing and fluid, built by an understanding of normality and sense of place based on repeated behaviours and language.

Title: A Safe Habour Medium: Oil on canvas
i have painted this inlet many times and have only known it to be peaceful and serene.
Yet these ancient rocks must have been pushed up with great force and brutality, to lie scattered among the hills and waterway, for such a distance.

Title: A Chilling Prophecy Medium: Digitally manipulated photographic print
Wandering around Antique/Collectable stores or markets generally provides me with some interesting photo opportunities. When I came across this display of ‘PPE’, little did I know that this would shortly be a very pertinent subject.

I have taken a close up of a small portion of the display and manipulated the shading and clarity to focus attention on the eye of the mannequin – a glimmer of life!

Title: Vibration I Medium: Oil on canvas
Title of Painting: “Vibrate I”
Medium: Oil on Canvas, Framed
Artist statement:

Vibration I is one of a series of works, including Shimmer which was selected in 2018 for the Busselton Art Award, that consider the translation of sound into a visual representation.
I lived for a long time within the shadow of the Albany Port silos and the ever-present sound of this structure dominated the neighbourhood and was the background soundscape to my live. Having recently moved from the area I am distilling the memory of the soundscape in my art practice.

The large structure is represented in glazed layers produced by hand cut stencils.
The colour palette and composition of offset layers were developed through a number of studies to allude to the vibration of the working silo. The placement of stencils to build up layers of structure intentionally represent the hum and pulse of the mechanism.
My visual art practice continues to be influenced by sound as a further means of understanding a subject.

Title: Pushing the sky away Medium: Charcoal on cotton rag paper
This is a charcoal drawing on cotton rag paper of the sky over Point Daking and Point Dalling in Dunsborough during Winter. ‘Pushing the sky away’ represents the sublime and wonder of nature in this small corner of Western Australia.

Every evening we walk our dogs along the beach and every evening the bay looks completely different. I am interested in representing the beauty of this coast in all weather systems particularly now as we are living through this time of deep uncertainty. ‘Pushing the sky away’ represents this overwhelming sensation of something much greater than us all.

The process for this work involved drawing and scrubbing charcoal dust into the fibres of the cotton rag support, building up many layers and at the same time erasing and adding more dust which ultimately allowed the clouds to finally be revealed.

Title: The shape of things to come: Temperature's rising Medium: Glass - Fritt-de-verre
In the summer of 2010/11 water temperatures off the south-western coast of Western Australia rose to unprecedented levels. This warming event was termed a 'marine heat wave'. Surface temperatures were more than 3°C above the long term monthly average, rising to 5°C in late February /March. This led to mortality of fish and invertebrates, and also resulted in what is believed to be the first WA regional scale coral bleaching event.

Coral ecosystems are a source of food for millions; protect coastlines from storms and erosion; provide habitat, spawning and nursery grounds for economically important fish species; provide jobs and income to local economies from fishing, recreation, and tourism; are a source of new medicines. A temperature about 1 °C (or 2 °F) above average can cause bleaching. Once these corals die, reefs rarely come back. When few corals survive, they struggle to reproduce, and entire reef ecosystems, on which people and wildlife depend, deteriorate.

If rising temperatures continue into the future, the shape of and colour of these fragile systems will be altered forever.
