I have worked as a Graphic Artist most of my working life in the publications industry with Fairfax’s and News limited. My area of expertise were illustration and information graphics relating to the hard breaking news stories. General newspaper layout design and production overflowing into the digital online publications area also utilized my skill set. I also worked as a technical visualiser graphic designer for BHP in the petroleum industry and was heavily involved in the development of the Timor Sea. My employment background has had a huge impact on my art and the way I view the world.
In the early 70ties I studied Fine Art at Preston Institute of Technology Melbourne and have always had a very keen interest in painting and fine art.
Now I paint full time. I paint pictures about Australia and my own personal narrative, try to visualize this magnificent country in a different way. I feel that there is so much subject matter that has not been painted. I really on the use of the metaphor to suggest the viewer try and look beyond the traditional landscape and venture into the landscape of the mind.
Hence, the paintings are of the surrealist nature. The interpretation of dreams and mans relationship with the metaphysical landscape. The food chain and the harshness of the great Australian outback with emphasizes on my own personnel narrative.
