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 one of my favourite views. We are looking at the hill behind Cottesloe Beach with all the pines on it. This wonderful place reminds me of a romantic Germanic forest.

It is a sunny day and you are in Cottesloe Village. The village is at the centre of the painting because it sits at the heart of the community. It’s a gathering place between the blue of the river and the blue of the ocean on the other side.

You can feel the magic as you make the crossing. Leaving on the ferry from Fremantle is the start of your escape. The ships, the water, the freedom of Rottnest. Every day is a holiday.

This painting is about how people move away. Then they come back. Cottesloe Village is where they meet up again to reconnect with family and friends. It is a place of comfort.

I really love Cottesloe. This painting is all about how it sparkles at night with the moon and the stars and the lights on the horizon. The light is still shining through, even in the darkest of times.

This painting tells a story about Cottesloe, a village between the life giving waters of river and sea.Lines of Norfolk pines stand around the tea house and along Broome Street, and the railway line runs through on its way down to Fremantle. Mosman Bay is calm, with its jetties and small boats at anchor. Looking out over the ocean to Rottnest, you can see the container ships anchored in Gage Roads, and the kite surfers dance along South Cottesloe beach. The name of this painting was inspired from a poem by Rumi: “We feel the flowing water of life here, you and I, with the garden’s beauty and the birds singing”.

It is early afternoon and you are looking out across Point Walter, Keynes Point and Cottesloeover to Rottnest. The sea breeze is blowing the clouds overhead. You can see Claremont and the black forest of pines in Cottesloe. This is a generous place of water and trees and people finding their way.

Cottesloe is such a charming village. It sits beside a little forest of pine trees on the hill. There’s the beach in the distance. These are the ways we think about Cottesloe. And why we love it so much.

Here are two places that so many of us go to escape our routine. And relax. To me, the ships are our problems that can loom large when they are up close. Time and perspective sees them retreat to dots on the horizon.

A friend commented that this painting was a riot. That is exactly what I was after. I wanted to capture all the elements that excite and delight us in this landscape. What a wonderful and adventurous place Rottnest is. The passing ships are so mysterious with their colourful stacked containers. There’s the magic of Cottesloe Beach, whales, lighthouses and the movement of the clouds. And the metropolis of Fremantle, busy with its port, trains and excitement, watched over by Dingo. These places awaken my childhood sense of wonder.

There’s yellow Rottnest with the sun shining down and reflecting across the water. At the bottom of the picture, you can see the reef. The Dingo Flour logo means a lot to me because it reminds me of flour, flour bags, cooking scones, domesticity and caring for people. I had a lot of fun painting those clouds in this work. I love how clouds change. As they come and go, your view of the world is altered. I enjoy how all this movement plays out over the water. I am reminded of how bad times cloud over and block the light. They move away and things feel lighter once again. In this painting, I became very interested in textures on the surface of the water. In this painting, the whales are under the surface of the water as an outline.

You’ve got to be a local person to understand why the Dingo Flour logo is there. Maybe it’s as simple as the fact when you drive down the road, and you see the Dingo thing it is tremendous. It stands out. There aren’t many places in the world where something like this has evolved. I love the Dingo Flour dingo because it reminds me of is flour, flour bags, scones, cooking and caring for people.

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.

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.

This is about kids and their beach holidays. There are the whales coming in for a visit past Cottesloe and Rottnest. You can see the Dingo Flour sign, lighthouses and even the pretend smugglers cave at Bathers Beach. Giant cargo ships cruise in and out of the harbour. Really this is a children’s paradise.
