Banksia leaves III, 2023
76 x 76cm acrylic on canvas
Nestled amongst national park land hundreds of banksia trees help form the spectacular landscape of The Pinnacles on the South Coast of NSW. With so much to absorb, I love how a few simple photos of those zig zag leaves had me instantly visualising complete artworks. Back in my studio I was overcome with happiness when the idea became painted so fluently. When natures influence is strong, there’s no hesitation in the creative process and that is one of the most fulfilling things as an artist.
