My creation weaves together the soulful verses of Persian poet Omar Khayyam, declaring, "I cannot endure this world without wine," with the enchanting imagery of ancient Iranian ceramic jars from the Qajar dynasty. These jars, adorned with hand-painted flowers on a warm, sandy base, were crafted with love for storing or serving wine.As I reflect on these aged vessels, each stroke of paint whispers untold stories. They are not mere objects they are bridges to our past, crafted by hands weath

Davey?s Bay is a small shallow bay, one of several adjoining the township of Mount Eliza. It is used mainly by fisherman and the yacht club. I love to paint our beautiful Victorian coastline from the Mornington Peninsula to the Great Ocean Road. I love the ruggedness of the bluffs, rocks and cliffs to the sandy beaches in between.
