Biography:

"My paintings are based on the interesting and often secret narrative of regional Australia's inland waterways.  

My intent is for the viewer to firstly see a deconstructed landscape as a cohesive whole then to be drawn in closer to notice the nuanced layers, signatures and details.

I am drawn to the mosaics of colour, the whimsical scribbles of nature’s marks and the lacey reflections on the water.

Without focusing on the literal and descriptive, the work subtly suggests and translates the story of the dynamic, evolving wetland environment. " Nat Ward, 2016.
