Tasmanian Paintings Vol.1 was inspired by the effects of my return to Tasmania’s east coast in 2008. The idea behind the book was primarily to build a broader awareness of this stunningly beautiful area, known as the ‘Gateway to Maria Island’. I have chosen to tell the story of this personal sea-change, and of reconnecting to the landscape of my childhood. The book speaks of this homecoming and how it has effected my process as a painter.
Putting a book together was a very new adventure for me. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it.
