Location: Australia

My art career began in 2001 after a serious illness and has steadily progressed over the years after much brush mileage, to my current position of being able to hold solo exhibitions in Australia and be invited to show in group exhibitions in Italy, New York and Hong Kong.

Spurred on by the colours of my homeland, Australia, my approach to a blank canvas is an exciting journey as I drip acrylic inks and let them dry to create a starting point. By splashing, throwing, rolling acrylic paint and tilting the canvas, coral creations, start to appear. Colour is my driving force and at this point a few brush strokes are added to create another aquatic wonder, which makes up the main body of my work.

Corporate and private commissions have been undertaken over the years with clients returning time and time again. I love to teach and enjoy sharing my artistic skills with others.
