Paying attention to the gradual change in light just before the sun sets. Some things get lighter and more vibrant but most things get darker. The shadows are just as beautiful as the light. As the sun sinks, the shadows also change colour minute by minute. Like layers of sheer fabric being  lowered down over the trees, houses and the ground. As the shadows darken the glow forms.


50 x 50cm {20 x 20inch}.

Acrylic on canvas. Framed in raw Tasmanian Oak, ready to hang.

The small works group well together on a feature wall or above a side board.



'Shadow & glow' was created in the midst of the pandemic, after the initial discombobulation settled and the slivers of gold started to appear. 

Lockdown meant long stretches of time to paint and a chance to focus on the important things. I noticed a growing attachment to nature and an increased yearning to be out in the natural world. Daily walks through the tiny pockets of nature - not usually the main feature of inner city living - became the highlight and the inspiration for the new works.

Short winter days meant walks usually happened just before dusk, when everything intensified.


As a painter, I am inspired by the abstract shapes and colours in the suburban landscape. I aim to create a beautiful atmosphere for viewers to feel and connect with, rather than trying to depict reality.

I am equally drawn to the shadows and the glow - the beautiful soft-edged shadows cast by trees and the glow of the sinking sun and changing traffic lights. Tiny brightly coloured flowers against blocks of blue-green leaves, white branches and pale foggy air.
