‘Kaleidoscope’ seeks to convey the vibrant mood and inspirational spirit of the reef and of how I feel when I’m diving. I have painted in a playful way ~ using memory and experience to recreate light and the reef’s bright colours to uplift the viewer. I love the flowing lines of the tendrils moving curiously, spiralling like a paintbrush, through the corals. Timeless underwater landscapes become filtered through a vivid kaleidoscope of all my diving experiences and the shapes and colours unravel.
I started my painting and meditation journey when I was nineteen and have always been in connection with the land and sea. I have over one hundred dives behind me and have a deep affinity with the ocean and its creatures. I hope we keep our amazing Australian reefs safe and protected and do all we can do to allow them to flourish.
