About

An artist is not something I had in mind for my future. I didn't finish high school and so I plunged into the workforce, working in a range of fields and completing further education. I worked as a toilet cleaner, apprentice chef, cabinet maker, teacher, investigation officer, Google Earth/Maps technician, high school head of department and now I take on my new career for the first time in 2017; full-time artist! I'm self taught with much trial, error and persistence.

I am fascinated by existentialism and absurdism; what does it mean to be alive? I create art pieces which explore the beauty in existence through realistic expressionism. I most often use charcoal as this material reminds me of the harsh contrasts in life and death; how death can feed life, such is my charcoal to artistic creation.
