The Quiet Wilds Studio  22nd August - 27th September

I take long walks in forests and bushlands around Victoria when I start work on a new series. Walking is conducive to dreaming, and dreaming blurs the threshold between the visible and the invisible. That is what I like to paint. I forget I have edges, or rather the edges become wild, tangled, enmeshed with my surroundings. I get lost in the place where forest outbreath becomes human inbreath, where the primitive heart quickens. This art is a record of an intimate, unfolding relationship with places that nourish inner wilderness. The conversation between the earthly and the numinous, between the wild edge of the known and unknown is what stirs me to create.
