Artist bio

I am a Sydney based artist, currently working exclusively with the subjects clouds and light. Throughout my work the most important element is by far documenting the everyday.
Extraordinary moments are found in the most mundane of ventures from children dancing in the rain to the way the way the sunsets after a long day, for me its in noticing these moments of purity the ordinary becomes truly extraordinary.
My works are held in many private and public collections both Australia and overseas.

I create art because...

its who i am, its a part of me. from my earliest memories i've always wanted to be an artist. creating has been my way of understanding the world. It makes sense to me its my language.

When you look at my art, the thing I want you to feel is...

the atmosphere of the painting, i want you to get lost in the movement, the colour, the brush strokes. imagine you are looking up at the sky. Let the clouds glide through you.

The thing I most want to say to non-artists is...

You are the anchor! i get a lot of comments...if you just put a treeline in or something it would make more sense. so imagine you are outside looking up at the clouds or siting on your favourite bench watching the sunset.

I believe art is an important part of our lives because...

I believe art is important because it takes us outside ourselves or sometimes inward. the point is it makes us feel. gives us different point of view.
