The first artist I loved was Aubrey Beardsley then Egon Schiele. I loved the lines of both these artists and their takes on the human condition. A big influence of late has been Giorgio Morandi for his quiet and stillness yet strong depictions. Godwin Bradbeer, Erika Gofton and Prudence Flint are among the contemporary Australian artist whose talent never fails to inspire
