I have lived and worked in Europe and have travelled extensively throughout Asia but have always returned to my home in Sydney. After completing a B.A. in Visual Art from Cofa in 1983, I continued my art practice, moving from painting and drawing to printmaking, specifically etching over the last 15 years.
My work is figurative and narrative in style and draws inspiration from my travels and the art that I have seen during those travels, I have taken particular delight in and have been inspired by the work of artists such as Peter Bruegel and William Hogarth. I find further inspiration in the world around me and use various narratives to explore ideas, feelings and emotions.
My most recent etchings are strongly influenced by the purchase of land in the country and while still populated by people the images explore the bush, its landscape, iconography and symbolism.
