I am a Brisbane based artist primarily working with painting and pastel drawings.  I graduated from the Queensland University of Technology with a Bachelor of Built Environment (Interior Design) and balance my practice with digital 3D architectural illustration work.

I primarily make realist paintings and drawings that document the beauty and contrasts of the natural environment.  I am also interested in the depiction of water and the ability of a still image to capture the ephemeral play of light and shadow on its surface.

I am particularly interested in creating works that play with depth and perspective.  As an artist concerned with accurate representation, I always work to create highly detailed images, but at the same time I attempt to distort the rules of conventional composition by playing with unusual angles and altered imagery.  I like to disorient the viewer's perception of reality.  At times the results can reflect a surreal influence - these works use vivid colour and fantastical imagery to play with the conventions of landscape painting and provide a new take on a traditional genre.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my website.  I hope you enjoy looking through my gallery of works.  Please contact me if you have any queries or feedback - I would love to hear from you.
