‘In Solitude’

Ink and watercolour on paper

297mm x 420mm




My work was inspired by the reflective times we have all been experiencing this year. It’s simplistic style in Ink and Watercolour shows how we have had to pare back our lives, yet feel so uplifted and enriched by the sea and our thoughts.


How does your work engage with the theme ‘The World at Home’?

The Surf Coast is home. It encompasses us with it’s calming embrace like a Mother’s arms when things go awry. It listens to us and our pleas and answers us in the gentle whisper of the waves. My artwork represents this theme.
