Clifton Springs Artist/Studios

Named after mineral springs which were found in the area during 1870, Clifton Springs spans a diverse coastline consisting of a mixture of steep cliffs, sandy beaches and rocky outcrops.

Village of Clifton Springs. Formerly known as Sulphur Springs, Clifton Springs owes its identity to the Sulphur Brook that runs through it. The natural mineral water established the village as an important healing center.

A boat harbour protected by a breakwater is situated off the northern end of Jetty Road. On the western side of the harbour is a stretch of sandy beach near a dismantled pier. A scenic walk with views along the coast and north to the You Yangs mountain range can be enjoyed by following the pathway through Adrian Mannix Reserve along the cliffs above the harbour.

The secluded Dell Picnic Area, next to the Clifton Springs Golf Course at the end of Springs Street, is accessible via several walking tracks which descend into an area that appears to be carved out of the surrounding cliffs. There are shelters and a large expanse of open lawn which extends right down to the sandy beach.  The Dell is a popular place for artists.

I love to work in oil because of its intensity of colour and fluid texture. My paintings often depict local scenes from around the Bellarine or landscapes from my travels around our vast country.

My work evolves organically, fuelled by an ongoing passion to express energy, movement, rhythm, dynamics, continuity. It is also inspired by the challenge of making complexity apparent through simple, sensually satisfying forms; to explore how meaning is created by juxtapositions of light and shade, negative and positiveshapes.
