    Because I placed no expectation on myself that these paintings would work or that they’d be seen by another soul outside my studio walls, I just relaxed and had fun with them. The paintings came out of my subconscious—no photos, no sketches, just blank canvases and a wild woman slapping on paint! I remember it was a wintery Australian Sunday in July 2010. All was quiet in the butcher shop below my studio; the weather was quite bleak but it was as if the sun were shining inside my little room. I could smell the scent of salt water, and the squawk of seagulls was the only chatter in my head.

    To achieve the intense colors I polished specific parts of the painting with literally dozens of layers of paint, using both glazes and thin stains. The versatility of acrylics lets me do this very quickly, building up one area and playing down another and then changing it if I didn’t like the results. I usually start with two or three reference photos and using the grid method transfer a fairly accurate representation to the canvas, fixing it with hair spray. Having an accurate drawing gives me the confidence to start experimenting, which is where the fun starts.
