Prints of paintings in greeting cards: Tasmania with love


2020 has been a strange year and with the difficulty visiting many of the important people in our lives, posting a card with a personal message is helping us stay connected. Here are some of my images available as blank, standard sized greeting card for $5 (with envelope). Free postage on orders in Australia.

Grassed Dunes, East Coast Tasmania
Wedge Tail Eagle

Iris and Poppies on black

Earrings, hand painted, ocean


Handpainted using encaustic wax medium so the painting is 3 dimensional. This pair… colours of the ocean..is off to Victoria tomorrow… sold $30. The paintings are so tiny, 12mm. The bezels are bamboo and the hooks surgical steel. Unique… no one else uses the technique I developed to paint these. Only in Tasmania… but I post worldwide.

2020 Lockdown watercolours


During this lockdown period I walk most days for exercise. I am lucky that there is an expansive beach just 5 minutes from home. This has given me many beautiful photos … just using my phone. A few of these I have interpreted as watercolours. Remember my aim is to capture what it felt like to be there not to reproduce the photo accurately. There is a magic about wet in wet watercolour that cannot be captured with other media.

Tasmanian treasures in Encaustic Wax


I have been enjoying doing little encaustic wax paintings, incorporating specimens of flora I collected and pressed when I was Artist in Residence at Cradle Mt Wilderness Gallery. The plant samples are collected from the world of mosses, ferns and fallen leaves on the forest floor… a niche I also love to photograph. These creative art paintings are presented in shadow box frames which I construct from Tas Oak timber.
