“Art is never finished, only abandoned.” ― Leonardo da Vinci.


Painter, Installation Artist, Artist-Photographer.

I’m multi-layered, complex, curious, anti-normal and eclectic in nature, and I enjoy entering new and unexplored spaces in which to create.

​What comes, is, what is, will be, what’s next…

I like creating art. It takes me places, usually somewhere deep inside. So essentially, what you see is a representation, commentary, insight into me. My many states of being, my mindsets, my struggles, my hope and dreams, my observations, feelings and thoughts about the state of stuff, external and internal. I love playing with colour and concept. Not one to colour between the lines, I take my art to where it wants to go, with freedom and without fear.

Some of it’s good, some of it, well… I’ll leave it up to you to decide which is what, because the thing with art is, it doesn’t matter what it is. It is what you see and how you feel around it, it is how it connects and to where it connects. Analyse it if you want, play with it, sit with it, walk past it, like it, hate it, ignore it, enjoy it.

Yes, I’ve won awards and received accolades, but really my art just is. I’ve also just returned from a 3 month art residency in Oregon USA where I extended my visual and creative expression. I plan to return in 2020 for another interesting sojourn, this time in the high desert.

All my art is for sale. To view in person, inquire about, or to purchase please contact me on 0417 641 267.

Connect with me in Instagram or Facebook (links below) to keep up to date with my new series, Last One Standing – The adventures of the last human in existence.

I am also available for commission pieces.
