So much about Sydney is inspiring for an artist. The excitement of the city and its people of course, but for me most exciting is its water – the harbour, inlets and ocean beaches. Coming from Adelaide many years ago to live on Sydney’s northern beaches I was impressed by the sheer power of the waves and the majesty of the seas.
This series of paintings reflects the ocean as a strong presence in Sydney and in my life. I continue to be captivated by the rhythm and swirling surfaces of the waves at the shoreline and the ferries carving through the deep underlying calm of the harbour.
