“They are a series of works I did to accompany my father ( psychiatrist Russell Meares ) work on the conversations between Carl Jung and the Mathematician Wolfgang Pauli . Pauli had a series of dreams that these works are about. Through the discussion of his dreams he invented the Quantam theory and received a Nobel prize.”

‘’When I was 9 I went to the National Gallery of Victoria with the school where one of my stepmother’s paintings was hanging , I didn’t tell anyone. I thought then and still do. I Want to make Art that directly affects, connects and moves the viewer regardless of age Education or race.
I am a figurative painter interested in the human connection to place and the Universal themes of belonging, alienation, environment and memory. My paintings tell stories and like patchworks piece together real and imagined experiences, often including metaphors and symbols I consciously and unconsciously create poetic visual landscapes .”
