About

originally a psychologist, i have been painting for nearly 10 years
initially i was drawn to portraiture, but recently i have been experimenting with large scale abstract works
i paint in 1 meter square modules which can be combined in any way a client likes
my goal is to make attractive, stimulating art that works well in modern residential or commercial spaces
i have had 4 solo shows, the most recent being at red gallery in north fitzroy, melbourne
