This painting is based on two simple 5- minute life-drawings completed in early August 2019. Using my life drawings, I first drew the main structure lines of the figures in water-soluble crayon on cartridge paper. After spraying fixative on the drawing, the paper was wetted and stretched on a board to dry ready for gesso and painting. Then several layers of clear gesso and acrylic paint were applied. I started with a brush, but then used my hands and fingers to mould the paint over the two figures. It was a huge amount of fun to paint. I felt like a child again.
The final painting has also been sprayed with matt fixative. My daughter named the painting because the colours and textures made her think of strawberries, and blubarries, and cheesecake. .

I grew up on a mixed farm, until I went to high school aged 11 in the Wimmera district in Victoria Australia. At high school, unable to timetable both Art and Math, I studied the latter by correspondence in the school library. I was not very disciplined and spent most of my time looking through Art books. Later, I completed a Diploma in Fine Art (Painting), and a Graduate Diploma (Sculpture). Wanting to travel, I gained further qualifications in teaching, linguistics, and languages.

My work is largely auto-biographical and incorporates elements of my history and my future goals – even before I am consciously aware of these goals or historical references myself. I am currently drawing with a variety of mark-making media, and painting in both acrylic and oils.

I believe that practice, and physiological and mental predispositions, combined with life and incidental circumstances, confirm the direction and so-called talent of any individual. As humans who have evolved and endured, we sought patterns in nature which helped our species to survive. Now we revive those patterns in our culture. We see relationships everywhere; in nature, mathematics, science, storytelling, music and in the visual arts etc. We often are unconsciously aware of these patterns.
