I am a Scottish-born Australian visual artist who moved to the United States in 2000, and have lived in Virginia since 2006. I began painting Chinese and Japanese scenes using house acrylic paints on boards when I was 17.
Many moons later, my home, nestled between the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Shenandoah River, provides inspiration for my work, including abstract elemental-based art which incorporate foraged materials, and Asian-influenced foliage paintings.
I have recently discovered the joy and creativity of Steampunk. Each of my Steampunk Art pieces present a mystery that can only be solved by you being absorbed into a Victorian Era of fantastic steam-powered machines, clock works and secret drawers. Hidden in every Steampunk piece is a ruby pin - an important element of any crafted watch mechanism.
Expressing myself through art has played a central role in my journey through Recovery, and a source of tremendous, curative strength. I offer this positive power to others and hope that, through my art, I can share its loving and healing qualities.
Some of my work has been jury selected as part of the second Art Exhibition at the Purcellville Art Gallery, from October 3, 2019 through January 5 ,2020. Please come and support this fantastic new, local gallery in Northern Virginia.
I hope you enjoy my art collection.
