About

As a Tasmanian based artist it's not surprising I take much of my inspiration from this beautiful island I live on. I travel often and love to spend time hiking in places as diverse as the Utah deserts and the Italian Dolomite mountains. Although my work is heavily influenced by the coast and water in general these beautiful, natural landscapes feature in my artworks as well.
My principle mediums are pastels and acrylics but I also enjoy experimenting with inks, watercolours ,collage and mixed media. Although largely self taught I have been fortunate enough to attend many workshops with well regarded Australian artists which has helped me develop my own artistic style. I get a great deal of enjoyment in passing on the skills I've learned through study and practice by tutoring at local art groups and on my You Tube Pastel Painting channel.
I have many commissioned paintings in collections throughout the world and am happy to work with you to create an original work of art from your photos. You can contact me at [email protected]
