began to draw and paint pretty much as soon as I could walk. From
a very early age I have spent most of my time sketching and constantly
practising, and began working as an artist full time from 1993.
I have since returned to study occasionally and have learned more
in various disciplines such as life drawing studies, printmaking,
photography, how to build my own canvas frames from scratch and
mix rabbit skin glue gesso, to learning the more challenging technology
with which you view this site today.
enjoy painting and drawing in all forms and I am constantly switching
from one medium to another, as each have different nuances and expressions
which I love to explore. The content of my work also varies, with
my inspiration being drawn from life, nature, dreams, experiences
and the vision of other artists in the past and present as a sometime
catalyst for creative expression in me.
The human form is always inspiring: the beautiful curves of the
human body are always a wonder to me and I never tire of expressing
the soft curves of the female figure or the strength of the male
with a few lines or more detailed brushstrokes. Currently I have
been producing a series of still lifes inspired by the intricate
shapes of Absinthe spoons and the culture surrounding this fin-de-siecle
have studied formally in Perth, Western Australia in Fine Arts,
Graphic Design, Photography and Multimedia at Curtin University,
Central Metropolitan College of TAFE and Edith Cowan University,
and I have also studied Stone Lithography in Edinburgh, Scotland,
at the Edinburgh Printmaker's Workshop. I have travelled the world
five times over seeking inspiration and many of my artworks derive
some of their content from memories and documentation of travels
and journeys I have made.
now, I reside permanently in Perth, Western Australia, as I have
found my home town always the best place in the world to return
to, with many wonderful friends and family here.
hope you enjoy browsing through the artwork I have created over
the years and will continue to create and add to this site, and
maybe make a purchase or two to take a little of my world into yours
