Soldiers Hill Artist Collective - SHAC
Stay tuned as this site is under construction.
I have been making artworks for more than 30 years, including:
• Paintings in oils, watercolours and acrylics
• Photographs from landscapes, macros and my travels
• Videos expressing my love of the natural world
There is an obvious risk of the “Master of None” syndrome but I have discovered that working in wildly different art forms has brought a wealth of opportunities for creative exploration. Years of experience may also has provided me with a rich collection of works that I can look back and reflect upon, as well as share with others.
My creative process often begins with observing and contemplating the world around me, whether it be through nature, people, or my own internal consciousness.
Then the work begins, attempting to spark curiosity, evoke emotion, and encourage reflection in the viewer. Through the use of color, composition, and symbolism, I strive to create pieces that are visually striking and intellectually engaging, paying no heed to current trends and cultural gobbledegook.
Over such a long period of creativity, I have discovered that art is a solace, a form of therapy in the long adventure of living, and yes a lot of fun!
