About

I love creating and expressing myself through painting and drawing. From as young as I can remember I have always loved art.
I have a Bachelor of Visual Communications from the University of South Australia and I am currently working as a Graphic Designer.
I love to experiment with different applications and methods, depending on my mood. I love the freedom of abstract and my process is a layer by layer approach. Never quite knowing where it will take me. I also love realism and love the mental concentration and absolute dedication that it requires.
I have always been a very visual type of person and love just watching the world go by, a self confessed daydreamer. I spent 7 years based in London and traveled extensively around the world as a happy and carefree backpacker, the experiences were incredible, travelling really does broaden your mind.
I now reside in Mount Gambier, South Australia and love the slower paced, relaxed country lifestyle. This region is amazing for inspiration as we have the beautiful Coonawarra wine regions, the ocean and rivers, pine tree plantations, volcanoes, underground caves and the spectacular Blue Lake all on my doorstep.
Being an artist is where I find my peace and happiness and it’s who I need to be. I hope that people find a sense of personal beauty in my art that conveys to their happiness and ultimately puts a smile on their face.

Influences

My main influence for my ideas comes from the world we live in and looking at the wonderful Australian scenery that we so often just take for granted. My own thoughts and how I feel at the time can also influence the direction a painting will take.
