I am an Australian living in Amsterdam. Travel and the experience of living in different places is my inspiration. I have a degree in Fine Art from City Art Institute (now UNSW) in Sydney where I majored in drawing. I more recently turned to painting using acrylic, water colour and gouche, working mostly from photographs and sketchbook drawings and en plein air on my travels. I make work based on the landscape/seascape, pushing more towards abstraction, using memory and the immersive act of painting itself to create feeling rather than a realistic interpretation of my subject.
My work is held in private collections worldwide and can be purchased via Saatchiart and my Instagram page or please send an email to email@example.com.
