'Scooters by the Sea' (at left) which is set in Margate Beach in Brisbane. ‘Pink Palace’ (above right) captures Brisbane’s Mods in a significant location – the Pink Palace which exist only in memory now, but was once located in Spring Hill. "Parked" (above left) is a still life which celebrates the scooter's strong shapely curves. The latter two hung in Wilston State School Art Prize.
My entry for 2010 Moreton Bay Regional Art Prize - pre-selection
I enjoy painting people and places - relating to one another in their natural surroundings. My painting is part of a series entitled Brisbane Pockets and this painting is from a scene at West End Markets, which is always a vibrant environment. The markets are just the kind of visual feast I like to look at and draw inspiration from. Potato Seller was short listed.
