I make abstract, portrait and figurative paintings from my studio in Brisbane Australia. The abstract landscape paintings I make are aerial views while my portrait and figurative works are based around family, friends and people I admire. I am a storyteller at heart so love to create interesting images that are unusual and uplifting.
If you want to add a painting to make that room extra special, it's not as hard as you think
The modern interior depends on many elements to achieve a restful and coordinated space. When an interior starts to feel uncomfortable and you can't quite put your finger on what's wrong, it may be time to take stock. When I wanted to make my home look comfortable and creative,
I didn’t have a clue when it came to choosing colours or accessories.
I’d put up a painting or two and hope my eclectic collection of figurative art and small abstracts, photos, colourful accessories and precious objects would make my interiors look vibrant and interesting.
No such luck! My interiors looked chaotic and uncomfortable.
I didn’t know how to make things better so I gave up. Then, I was asked to make a bespoke painting to bring all colours in a bedroom together. I was dubious at first. Painting to order was something I had never done. Was I crossing the line between emotive fine art and decorative art?
To cut a long story short, I soon discovered you can make decorative art and, at the same time, fine art that becomes an emotional touch-point.
After completing the bespoke painting, I was impressed with how beautiful and peaceful the room looked and wanted the same thing for myself.
I started simply by using my paintings to change one room.
It worked and the accessories weren't overly expensive to buy.
