Being born in Albury I’ve always been drawn to the Australian landscape. I recall riding up the hill behind our house and being able to see an endless horizon. I remember how the light glistened across the land like sparkles of magic and from a very young I was captivated by this great land of ours.  

Entering the National Art School straight out of high school for three years was  definitely an eye opener for me and my practical training was completed with an intense 6 months at the Julian Ashton Art School during my mid-twenties, where I really learnt about colour and composition. The two very differing schools and their approach to painting honed my abilities to handle paint, composition and colour.  

I currently spend most of my time exploring dirt roads in rural Australia, where painting from life has played a critical role in shaping my current style and approach to painting. I have recently started reworking paintings in my studio that were painted en plein air to help give me more time to think about the work and inject the experience into the paintings. Using thick chunks of paint enables me to capture the tough Australian terrain. I want viewers to be able to see and feel the terrain on the surface of my paintings and through my work take them on my journey into the Australian landscape.
