My art has often been a response to world events. In the summer of 2020 I produced a body of work expressing the devastating impact of the massive bushfires burning out of control in Australia; this theme continues to weave itself into some of my new work. When COVID-19 began I started exploring ways to express the changed world we now live in and struggle to comprehend.
Isolation, such as we are experiencing during lockdowns, is not new to me due to the limitations of living with a neuropathic disease called Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) and the resulting disability. During the past decade I have spent many weeks at home in isolation and have learnt to embrace this by using the time to develop and enjoy my art.
My interest in the landscape, particularly the landscape of the Grampians region where I live continues as a theme in my work. Sometimes my abstract landscapes become metaphors for the lived pain experience as often reflected in the titles.
