I was born in Tasmania and currently based in Sydney. From my surroundings growing up I have an appreciation for the landscape and find painting an enjoyable platform to express this connection.
I also adore animals and love to paint the character I see in them.
Privileged to be a featured artist with Bluethumb, my work is held in both corporate and private collections around Australia.
