AUSTRALIAN WILDFLOWERS SERIES
This work is influenced by the wonderful Austalian wildflowers in gardens and bush near where I live.
1. The desert or sturt pea
2. Parson's Binds
3. Pink fingers
4. Various wildflowers
5. Common bluebell - emblem of the Australian Capital Territory
6. More bluebells
A stylised series inspired by the work of the late Australian artist Margaret Preston (1875-1963) - she was famous for her decorative still lifes, wood engravings and linocut printg, featuring Australian native plants.
"WATER BLOOMS" SERIES
This work has an art-deco feel, made in a number of colur ranges, with the royal blue being very rich and one of my favourties.
"ARYM LILLIES" SERIES
I love the big blocks of colour - contrasting large flowers against the darker background.
A more recent contemporary range using a Matisse-like approach with a musical theme
Art-deco inspired work with a charcoal grey background.
A recent range inspired by the brightness and liveliness of spring using a basic white glaze as the background.
'Over the top' fruit bowls with hand-moulded clay fruit clustering the stem (and the odd semi-relief inside the bowl).
