About

From dawn to dusk, the eternal landscape endures the ravages of time, weather and climate. My paintings and drawings explore the effect that time and weather impact on the landscape and the notion of an identity with the coastal fringe or the outback.

I like to paint a narrative into my works, a visual story telling about living on the coastal fringe of Australia. I explore history, seasonal weather and climate and relate this to life in general by putting it into my work. Climate is what you expect and weather is what you get.
