visual artist | australian landscape painter 

Combining representational imagery with an abstract language my paintings and drawings capture the 'feel' of the land, that particular unseen energy that coexists beyond our reach.

 

Stories that arise out of place, are woven into the visual context and surface, paths already mapped by those who came before us are investigated from a parallel angle.

 

My artistic practice is driven by a continuing experience of spending time in remote communities of the Northern Territory, Australia.  This rich cultural experience greatly influences the way I work and identify with country.

Painting plein-air or in my studio, it is always my reverential love and curiosity of nature, the environment and a deep affiliation with the land that underpins and guides my work.

 

I exhibit regularly and my work is held in public and private collections both in Australia and internationally.
