ARTIST STATEMENT

Do you ever stop to look at the world around you and search for the details of the natural world that stand before you? The vast array of spectacles in nature are abundant on Magnetic Island. It is rich with beauty from the serine blue beaches to the walking tracks lined with hoop pines. My work is inspired by this experience and details three major aspects of Magnetic Island. The series focuses on the yellow Kapok flower and and the three islands environments that surround it. These include the sunny weather, pleantiful plant life and the Pacific Ocean water.

ARTWORK PROCESS

Acrylic paint on canvas. Three circular paintings containing layered images of kapok flowers and land environments of Magnetic Islands.
