I’m a Sydney artist, living on the northern beaches, who specialises  in fine art paintings including portraits.

Artist’s Statement:

"Your Majesty, Maggie T, of Gymea Lily"

“Your Majesty, Maggie T, of Gymea Lily”

“Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.”  Henry Ward Beecher

After a two year break, in late 2015 I finally picked up my brushes and began painting again.  I previously worked with oils however found the fumes were making me ill (turps and mediums), so I have since taken to using synthetic polymers (acrylics).  Although I loved painting with oils, my need to paint was greater!

This website is currently under re-construction following a number of changes, so keep visiting.  The theme being Renew, Recycle and Re-create.  I am interested in sustainability, and most paintings now involve an element of renewal and recycling.    Re-creating?  Definitely keen to make my artwork even more unique and at the same time more environmentally friendly.  So look out for recycled silk screen printing frames, window frames, vintage trays (love all things vintage and retro) and more.  You might even spot a bit of crocheting!
