Born in Melbourne and growing up in Canberra, I have a passion for wildlife art with a particular affinity for birds. Now based in Melbourne, I continue to develop a fluid style using watercolour as my primary medium. Watercolour performs beautifully to capture the movement and freedom of the subjects I paint. For me the most rewarding paintings are those with the fewest strokes, created with a minimalistic approach. In 2015 I left my twenty-year career as a research scientist to become a professional artist. The decision to paint full-time has been rewarded with numerous successful solo exhibitions and award winning paintings.
