I grew up outside in the fresh air with miles of beach and almost no one in sight. Most of the really memorable parts of my life have had origins in beach combing and soaking up the blazing Australian sun. Being the curious creature that I was, I chose to spend the majority of my childhood staring into rock pools and sifting through nests of shells on the shoreline. I was a treasure hunter of sorts ready to be amazed by the tiniest piece of tumbled glass or a hermit crab hidden inside a beautiful shell.
To me my environment was always a treasure trove of special things. At some point I started documenting all of these epic finds into my sketchbooks. So was born the weird kid the one that was obsessed with drawing everything. I even started drawing and painting dead fish and crabs that had washed up on the beach.
A lot of my art work reflects the seascape and natural south Australian environment but I am now also exploring portraiture and different elements of expressing emotion through my art work. Art work can be produced in various mediums including coloured pencil and watercolour. Primarily paintings are produced in exterior quality sign writers acrylic as I love the high key palette and texture options that are available in this range.
