Serene Surfer

Oil on canvas | 45.8 x 45.8 x 3.5 cm

This artwork incorporates soft colors and subtle texture to create a peaceful scene of a lady heading towards the waves with her surfboard. As a Gold Coast local, this painting was inspired by my love for the ocean and I wanted to capture the serenity of taking time away from the busyness of life to enjoy the water. Using a coarse brush, I used a criss-cross technique to create visible brushstrokes that can be seen as the light catches them. For some of the waves, I have applied thick paint which has created texture. ‘Serene Surfer’ has been made on a gallery quality canvas and the best quality oil paints have been used.

Moody Beach

Oil on canvas | 61 x 61 x 3.5 cm

This artwork captures a moody seascape on an overcast day. Using a palette knife, the oil paint has been applied thickly to the canvas, creating dramatic texture. The visual element of texture in art evokes an array of emotions for each individual. The 3 dimensional nature of an artwork provides an interesting viewing experience, especially as the moving light of day casts different shadows at every hour. With texture, the artwork comes to life through the bold strokes of each colour. The technique of using a palette knife to thickly apply paint is called ‘Impasto’. This technique creates the sense that the paint is coming out of the canvas.

Lady on the Beach

Oil on canvas | 61 x 61 x 3.5 cm

This artwork incorporates soft colors of grey, pink, and white contrasted with a pop of yellow. The lady on the beach under her umbrella creates a peaceful scene. Using a coarse brush, I used a criss-cross technique to create visible brushstrokes that can be seen as the light catches them.

Angelique

Oil on canvas | 61 x 61 x 3.5

Angelique- unruly and beautiful with her magenta curls. I am continually inspired to paint feminine subjects and to capture both bold and graceful characteristics through the artwork. This artwork is an expressive piece, and I paid special attention to the texture of the brushstrokes. I used a coarse brush and a cross-hatch motion which created a subtle texture. The visual element of texture in art evokes an array of emotions for each individual.

Lady With a Fan

Oil on canvas | 76 x 76 x 3.5 cm

This artwork portraits a lady’s piercing gaze as she covers herself with a fan. I love to paint feminine figures, and the lady in this artwork has an air of mystery about her.

African Mother

Oil on canvas | 76 x 91 x 3.5 cm

This artwork portrays a young African lady carrying her baby and the fruit from her harvest. This painting is particularly special to me and carries sentimental value due to my South African heritage. Growing up, this was an image I would often see- an African mother carrying her baby wrapped to her body, all while balancing baskets on her head. These women would often walk for miles to get back home. Truly, these women have qualities of strength and endurance, which I wanted to portray in my artwork.

Majestic Bird

Oil on canvas | 61 x 76.5 x 3.5 cm

‘Majestic Bird’ features a beautiful blue and yellow Macaw- a large parrot native to the rainforests of South America. The Blue and Yellow Macaws striking colours make them hard to overlook.The visual element of texture in art evokes an array of emotions for each individual.

Midnight Daisies

Oil on canvas | 61 x 61 x 3.5 cm

My artwork takes a critical view on a person’s innate ability to harness creativity from personal imagination and inspiration from others. Through the use of texture, color, and imagery, my artwork seeks to unite reality with the surreal. In this sense, creativity is the act of bringing forth the things unseen into a world that is dominated only by what is physically perceived. Drawing inspiration from Van Gogh’s stars, colors, and texture in ‘Starry Night’, I sought to construct my own creative rendition of the artwork. This artwork has been created in my usual impasto style, using a palette knife to carefully layer each paint stroke.
