For as long as I can remember, I have always loved art... I often get asked 'what inspires me?' When I was growing up...we made our own fun. We didn't go on expensive holidays or theme parks, our holidays were spent camping or we would rent an old 'beach' house and play on the muddy tidal flats, pumping yabbies for fishing. As a family we would go for Sunday drives....we might go for a bush walk, search under logs for 'critters', picnic in the middle of 'no where', or go for a cool swim in a rock pool in the mountains. When I first started painting, I mainly painted the beautiful places that my husband and I tavelled to on our many camping journerys. Now that I have my 2 beautiful girls...I am sharing the beauty of the outdoors with them, and they now feature quite often in my artwork. I have been told by many people, that my artwork brings back childhood memories for them, and I hope that my artwork reminds you of a special memory too.

  2. Hi there Amanda!!!.. What a wonderful collection of consistently high quality figurative subjects.

    Each one is a visually strong narrative which... despite their "wordlessness"... evoke an invitation for the viewer to become involved through your effective compositional control and exalting use of crisp colour in combination with well executed lighting.

    All are masterpieces in their own right! I much admire your talent and consistency of finished product! Bravo!

    Good Painting!
    Warmest regards
    Bruce
