Castle-View Colours was created initially as an exemplar for my Year 12 Visual Arts in Practise Students. The task I had created for them was to create a landscape painting that incorporated urban and natural. They needed to find an art movement that influenced them with it too.
For me, it was an easy choice to paint the Townsville landscape. I grew up in Townsville with it's backdrop of Castle-Hill and the sugar-shaker skyline over the marina. I have always adored North Queensland because of my love for the Great Barrier Reef.
This painting for me covers both the beauty and colours of the North Queensland landscape and hopefully captures a bit of why I call Townsville home.

Depicting a school of Fusiliers schooling into a spiral. In the midst of this school, we see one lone Moon Wrasse who is swimming against the school - this could be symbolic of social comments of "swimming against the current" or "don't follow the sheep" "be individual"

This painting depicts five Manta Rays gracefully circling a bombie. For me, it symbolises the need to focus and find that balance and harmony in your life. It's a very meditative painting for me.

The Great Race
Oils on Canvas 2022
Depicting the baby Green Sea Turtle Hatchlings of Heron Island as they make the mad dash out to sea from their nests. Sadly, only 1 / 1000 make it as predators gather when they know a hatching is taking place.
Birds, rays, sharks, larger fish are all part of the array of predators waiting for the young soft shelled hatchlings.
Fishing at Dusk
Acrylic on Canvas 2020
We love to take our fishing boat out on the reef. We often stay out overnight and will fish the reef walls, chasing species such as coral trout, red throat, nannygai and spangled emperor.
Heron Island at Dusk
Water Colour on Paper 2022
Heron Island is one of my favourite places. The turtles, the stingrays and the Reef sharks.
Baby reef sharks patrol the beaches all the time - but especially at dusk waiting for the temperatures to cool and the baby turtle hatchlings to emerge.
