Bold calligraphy, transforming nature through abstract interpretation and asserting the primacy of gesture in expressing a personal vision of the natural world.

“...layers of banksia men cluster in forests of russet, red, gold,charcoal and ochre… rapid primal calligraphy captures the distinctive forms of banksia and other ancient bush blooms… abstract and textured layers of oils, acrylic and crayon drawing the viewer into the dappled light and geometric diversity of the Australian undergrowth.Carolyn Swanson (Newcastle Herald, 2009)
