Painter - Print-Maker - Photographer
After graduating in Fine Art in my hometown of Newcastle, I followed my feet, moved to Brisbane & became a premier league soccer player while developing my business marketing skills. Continuing my love to create, I subsidised my studies by making & selling mosaic & decorative mirrors on consignment via retail outlets & markets.
Stoking the fire of my passion, I continued to create not only for myself but for the Brisbane community through street art murals, landing my first commission for the Brisbane City Council.
Once I graduated from my Business/Marketing studies, in 2000, I made the move to Sydney and began my career. I continued to create while working full time in global digital marketing. My day job allowed me to use both sides of my brain; I get to be creative using technology.
I've reached a point where I can focus less on my marketing career & more on my art creating practices. I take inspiration from travelling the world whenever I can.
Inspired by Pop Art, music & New York art of the 80s, Picasso, Dali, Miro, Kandinsky & Klee also offer a feast for my imagination.
My favourite place is my imagination. I see creativity as my therapy, it’s how I process life. I don’t like to draw or paint what my eyes see; I prefer to create what my imagination sees.
My photographic abstraction technique allows me to do that with photography.
No restrictions because creativity has no boundaries.
