Reflecting, creating and painting technicoloured exuberant visions of life and the human condition...

My journey began, as a young child drawing and doodling when I should be paying attention in class. My pencils and brushes felt like ‘magical wands’ to visually create portals into a better world. Today I am still drawn to paint perhaps unconsciously attempting to transform what is sometimes ordinary and mundane into special and sublime.

My approach is intuitive and experimental. I love discovering new materials, medium and methods, which I call my 3Ms…

Besides being inspired by the awesome flora and fauna of the rainforest and beautiful beachscape dotted along the coasts of in Port Macquarie…. My current works are also informed by the underlying fascinatingly weird world of ‘quantum reality’ underneath all things seen and felt.
