I was born in Sydney, Australia. A country where the intense light of the southern hemisphere
inspires vivid color. My birth country also continues to influence my work with my native fauna & flora often finding it's way into my paintings.
I love to work on large canvases exploring dynamic figurative subjects. Metaphor and whimsy often merge together in surreal narrative lush landscapes.
Early on in my career I sought life experience from different cultures, settling for a time in Mexico. This had a profound influence on me as an artist. The festive surroundings brought my imagination fully to life.
For almost 2 decades I have lived in New York. A wonderful melting pot where I get to enjoy my other passion, dance. The 'why' behind my figures sometimes who's very dynamic energy almost leaps off the canvas.
My paintings have been infused with the influences of my travels. With world patterns & decorative details finding their way into the smaller details.
