The midnight Sea

I love the meaning of the Chinese animals and wanted to use them in my paintings to convey a positive message to the viewer. I decided that I would need to learn how to do watercolour so I found the best
artist mentor and studied with them. After I have completed a watercolour animal or nature feature I
then cut out the watercolour feature and use it for collage”.

Description

I am a contemporary artist living in Sydney Australia. I enjoy nature and I started to paint as a child, I later became a full time artist after I went to university to complete a creative arts degree.
My style is very unusual and doesn’t fit into the typical styles as I have blended contemporary modern art abstract oil painting with traditional realism watercolour which breaks many art rules!
I delight in to doing this as I love the softness of the watercolour in contrast to the vibrancy of the
traditional oil paint. I also enjoy the contrast of the realism style with the abstract movement.
I fell in love with watercolour after visiting China and viewing the beautiful watercolours that Chinese
watercolour artists use; I wondered how I could use traditional watercolour in my modern oil paintings. When I returned home from international exhibition in China I started to study Chinese animals and
their meaning as I have an interest in symbolism. Previously I have learned about western ‘dream
symbolism’ during studying for my psychology degree.
