About

Inspired by the nature surrounding my studio in South East Queensland, and the city just 30 mins away. Shapes, smells of the bush, sounds, movement, light, all play into my creations. I'm an intuitive painter- paintings evolve naturally and ethereal qualities often feature in my work.

I create works of large scale on canvas, smaller works on wood and paper. Abstract, gestural nudes and landscape are my speciality. I also do custom works on request and commissions including custom works for new home and sites including frescos for ceilings.
