My work is about colour and movement, using abstract geometric forms in response to the Urban environment, whether it be the shape and colour of the windsurfers darting across the harbour, the imposing forms of the inner city buildings or the soft patterns of dark and light of the Australian foliage.
My response is with colour, shape, line and form, either with coloured glass, which I cut to form the mosaic pattern, or by using enamels to paint on the glass. I make use of the transparency, iridescent and opaque qualities of both.
My work, in this exhibition, is inspired by organic patterns of mangrove roots, reflection of shallow water across static land; and the patterns of light and shadow along the shoreline while walking and taking photos in Tambourine Bay Reserve.
