During spring 2024, I travelled Australia for the first time and embarked on a once in a lifetime five-week road trip along the Pacific Coast Touring Route, from Cairns to Sydney.

This immersion in a new landscape had a profound effect on me.  The sense of light, the colour, stunning beaches, fascinating wildlife, and captivating Aboriginal art has acted as a catalyst for this series of work. 

Working in diptych and triptych over a letterbox format has allowed me to not only explore the new ideas generated from this trip, but also acts a visual representation of movement and travel.
