I am a visual artist located on the mid north coast of New South Wales, Australia. My paintings have been exhibited in various locations around Australia and have been sold both locally and internationally. I have also won several local art awards and been selected in numerous juried exhibitions.
As I get older I find that I am becoming more interested in dualities; the things we say but don't necessarily mean, or the way we look which no longer equates to how we feel inside. In my paintings, the concept of duality can be seen in the connections between past and present, and the juxtaposition of traditional techniques with new technology.
I am drawn to classical figurative compositions, especially those relating to the stories from ancient myth and folklore, which I then subject to digital abstraction until I find a contemporary way of continuing narrative. Painting in a flattened graphic style I build strong designs which play with shape, colour, pattern, and the effects of light.
