About

I am an Australian born artist, I have been developing a style which is vital to my aim of expressing the inherit self. My art is derived from the internal, I draw my inspiration from the subliminal. I believe all artistic vision is inherently from a source, that can only be considered as divine. I draw from my own personal experiences, all that I witness within the boundaries of my life, from all that I have felt internally ,to the many experiences i have endured throughout my life. I approach my work with a conceived idea or an illusory image, at first a set style or attitude taken on as an expressive outlet, and then eventually become stimulated before the work takes a life of its own through an emotional outlet during the performance of the work. I become captivated by the works progressive development, encouraging what works, to hold or expose a subconscious truth and beauty, creating a life of its own.“There is no single truth in Art, everyone holds their own truth which they have reaped through the life they have endured. Truth derives from a universal awareness.”

Education

My artistic style has no style, it is the pure expression of present feelings at the moment of creation, a performance, a blissful and subconscious dance before the medium of expression. My work is the discharge of raw and immediate sensations through the creative act or dance of the intuitive self towards the canvas. It is brush by brush, layer by layer a work of time/internal expression manifests into being. There is an intimacy between myself and the work, exhibiting an honest outpour of my pure emotions of which I have endured, provoking an alluring perspective of my own self.

Influences

I have always admired artists from the abstract expressionist movement, involved in the practice to express ones internal self, validating the authentic self in an expressive practice as well as their ideals, abandoning form of previous convention in order to articulate the essential importance of their work. Artist like Pollock, Rothko, Kline, Kandinsky, Gorky and so forth have always had a profound impact on my artistic intentions and attitude towards my true artistic expression.
