I am an artist in the making, enjoying the process very much and becoming more serious about art every day. My main training has been as a biologist. I discovered art in 2005 while taking a drawing course and in 2014 decided to quit my job and become a full time artist. I live in North Queensland, Australia
I work in a variety of media with lots of printmaking, drawing, and other media. The human figure and its social environment is a recurrent topic in my work, but I am also very attracted to the beauty of nature, so a combination of these two themes gives me a nice balance. Within printmaking I mainly work with relief methods (woodcut and linocut) but I am quickly expanding to include other media.
This website shows my work and my studio blog. If you are interested in purchasing any of the works please contact me using the ‘Contact’ page. Please note the following: 1) Collages: I use a variety of papers including magazine paper, which is not acid free or colour-fast (the colour can therefore fade with time). To minimise any fading the collages are varnished with a special UV light protecting varnish, however the works would be best framed and hung away from direct light. 2) All works are sold unframed and unmatted. 3) The price does not include postage. Larger prints can be posted rolled inside a tube to minimise posting costs.
