Growing up within a stone’s throw of the Murray River and finding entertainment in bushland and parkland, I developed a love of plants and the outdoors alike. I went on to study Landscape Architecture and have worked in this field now for over twenty years. It has awarded me the freedom to get out of the office and breath. I first picked up a paintbrush age of 36 and have divided my time between painting and landscape architecture for ten years now.
I mostly paint from life, which means I have my subject matter in front of me, whether or not it's a still life set-up or a model. I'm really interested in the technical aspect of painting. I like paintings that have interesting brush strokes and a softness to them, so that's a focus of mine.
