I’m showing you a landscape that you know well. There’s Kings Park, the city, the landmarks of Applecross and the river and the bridge. I’ve used gold light as an affirmation. I want people you feel the value of where you live, and your experience of the world.

I’m honouring the pure beauty and dignity of suburban life. This painting is Applecross on the Canning River, looking over to the city of Perth. I’ve included Garden City shopping centre where people gather. I’ve made the houses like a row of jewels. I’m saying there’s something individual and important about the people who find their home in the suburbs.

In this painting, we’re above the river looking across Melville to the ocean. You can see Canning Bridge in the foreground and Cottesloe and Rottnest in the distance. The houses moving through the picture express the language of people’s lives. Always changing, travelling and moving places.

On Canning Waters came into being after a conversation in the Studio with the Principal of Aquinas College. The painting looks across the Canning River and Salter Point towards the city, with the life of the river and land and the colour of the surrounding suburbs spilling over the school.

This is a view of the city of Perth over Rottnest. We are looking back across Cottesloe over to the city, the Swan River and Canning River and their bridges – the Narrows Bridge, Guildford Bridge, the Canning Bridge and Mt Henry Bridge, and the Fremantle Bridge. It is mid afternoon. Visiting Rottnest Island takes us back to that sense of wonder we had as a kid. We stand on the island and look back to where we’ve come from. We forget our turmoil and troubles. The beauty of the day is all there before us.

You’re looking across Applecross and Nedlands over to Cottesloe. You can see Kings Park and the university. This sweeping eagle’s view takes in Fremantle and Rottnest. It’s mid-afternoon on a summer day. There is a sense of emotional ownership over these lovely places and the memories they hold for us.

This is about the vibrant village life of Applecross. Meeting up at cafes is part of the experience of living around the edges of the river. I’ve painted the Applecross jacaranda trees like clouds of butterflies. Flowers float in the breeze from the water.
