I accept both adult & child portrait commissions. I am a Melbourne based artist, however this does not exclude interested parties from elsewhere as I work from photographs.

This body of work explores the notion that our experience is mirrored elsewhere by other unknown persons. The works allude to the fleeting realisation that, in certain moments, we share a connection with strangers who are having a similar experience.

A Portrait of Ophelia consists of a series of paintings that juxtapose the internal spaces we occupy with the external spaces of the city. I have used these two realms as a means of exploring the existence of the individual within an urban space.

This body of work explores the notion of fairytales in a contemporary and playful way. Using personal childhood photographs and patterns from early readers I have reconstructed stories and myths from my childhood.

While continuing my use of layered dark and light gesso, I have been experimenting with printmaking techniques such as silkscreen and etching, and have adapted these processes to enable me to apply them to the gesso surface.

Memento Mori is a Latin phrase that can be roughly translated as Remember that you are mortal. Traditionally a memento mori was a form of image created to remind the viewer that death is an unavoidable part of life, something to be prepared for.

Home is where the heart is - takes us on an elaborate journey; a journey that begins out in the world – in anonymous space - and slowly brings us home to something more intimate.
KZNSA Gallery, Durban, South Africa
The work is created using a process of layering white gesso on top of black gesso to create a controlled surface in which the dark layer sits just beneath a thin, light skin and thereby alludes to a metaphorical weight beneath the surface of things.
