It’s a belief of mine that we should live every moment of our lives with fun, laughter, and joy. Some would say live life with passion!
Portraits That Bite offers to share passion with you through stunning colourful Australian Flora and Fauna paintings and Custom Pet Portraits.
Jacarandas, not Australian natives, flower in October in Brisbane Australia where I live, and they are absolutely beautiful creating huge umbrellas of soft purply blue and dropping blooms to the ground below creating a gorgeous carpet of colour. Before they finish flowering, I plan on wearing my new Jacaranda coloured Cycling jersey and laying down amidst the carpet of blooms to get a photo. (Watch this space as the joyful but crazy photo is coming.) Awesome!! Yay!!

Being creative is a type of growth as I learn something new from every artwork I produce. Perhaps it makes me feel a little powerful to be in control of how a painting is going to look. Ha ha. Yes, I am a control freak. However, I also believe that we all need to live life to the fullest and I find creating something new, from scratch is a lot of fun. It is exciting.
In these current times of a worldwide pandemic, global warming plus war in some parts of the world I think it is refreshing to escape to the beauty of our natural countryside and appreciate the wildlife it supports. As humans we need to have a focus on preserving our planet and not just using its resources until nothing remains.
Thus the focus of my art is: - Our beautiful planet Earth and its native creatures.
