It is my goal to create artwork that sparks an emotional connection, awakens the senses and soothes the soul. I strive to create images that evoke a sense of happiness, peace and calm, an escape from the pressures of our busy modern-day lives. Images that you would be proud to hang on your wall and enjoy looking at every day.
Read the blog stories, where I post about my work and processes, daily photowalks, behind-the-scenes, thoughts and processes, information, ideas and inspiration, experiments, island life, artist life, activities and see the making of the works and products.
See our work in person, visit us at the Island Arts Gallery, 9 Ballow Road, Dunwich, North Stradbroke Island. Open 9am - 2pm everday (except closed Tuesdays). You will find us on the main road, next door to CJs Pizza. The Island Arts Gallery also features the work of other local Straddie artists, handmade jewellery and woven items, and much more. Also workshops.
My work involves photographing the stunning scenery of North Stradbroke Island, the beaches, the forests, the lakes and everything in between. I also experiment using a variety of different photographic techniques, using my camera instead of a paintbrush.
My images are available as wall art prints, and can be printed on a variety of print types, including canvas, aluminium, wood, acrylic and fine art papers. I also make home decor products, such as coasters and cushions, and also fashion accessories such as scrunchies, headbands, scarves and bags featuring my images and designs.
My wall art prints, home decor and fashion accessories are available from my online store, Ocean's Echo (oceansecho.com.au)
This website is for me to tell you my story, and show you the island through my eyes, and share with you my journey as an artist. I am always learning, often making mistakes, sometimes having success, and i will show you all of it.
Please check back regularly, I will be adding new content several times a week. I aim to be releasing a newsletter once a month, if you would like to subscribe, you can do so here, or email me and I can add you. You can also follow along on facebook and insta.
If you are visiting the island, be sure to call into the Island Arts Gallery and say hi. It is a lovely place to visit, we have a wide range of locally made items from local island artists, and we also hold workshops which are a great thing to do. We are open 9am to 2pm every day except Tuesday.
