About the listing
I have lived in Perth, Melbourne and Sydney and trained as an Illustrator and Graphic Designer. I often travel to various archaeological sites in the UK and Ireland, the Orkney Islands in Scotland being my favourite place. After working freelance in graphic design, I decided to incorporate my love of history and storytelling into a series of acrylic paintings.
I produce paintings with drama, atmosphere and a slight sense of the melancholy. In high school I adored learning about Rene Magritte, and as a result my paintings are done in the surrealist style with birds and statues often as the main feature.
As you can see, many of my paintings are inspired by places I’ve been to or folklore picked up in my travels. When I start a painting, I have a thumbnail sketch and a colour scheme already in mind. After that, it’s a case of plugging away at it until it looks the way I envisioned it to look.
I currently work from Sydney, but am prone to move around. My base is in beautiful Alvie, a small town
in Victoria’s South West and the perfect place to be inspired by nature, light and scenery.
