For most of my time as a painter, I’ve been lucky enough to live close to the interesting marine environments around Brisbane and I’ve never tired of making paintings from the elements found there. Not the usual picturesque or spectacular scenery but mangroves, wetlands and mud flats have always attracted me for their subtlety and particular low key beauty. They are teeming with life, but that life is often hidden and they are generally quiet, melancholy places. They are perfectly suited to slow, reflective looking.
