Hi there! Thanks for popping in and taking a look at my artwork.

I'm an Australian artist and I love creating digital art, taking photos, photo manipulation and painting. As long as I'm creating, I'm happy. I am consumed by art. Lately I've been doing more digital art because I'm really enjoying that. When painting I mostly use vibrant colours to create contemporary, often quirky paintings of various themes that catch the eye and stimulate the imagination. I use acrylic paint on canvas and my work is mostly fun and lighthearted. My vibrant paintings would be great as a focal point in any house.

I really enjoy photography too and most weekends will go for day trips and I've always got my camera with me ready to take that great photo that you'll just love. Life is full of photo opportunities.

I have had several exhibitions and I get such joy from seeing the reaction of people when they are taken by my work. Although I love to paint quirky abstract buildings, I am always looking for new subjects to paint as I love variety.

Here is my artist's statement in the form of a poem. Hope you like it!

I once wrote a poem
About the power of the mind
Now I have to put mine to the test
Let's see what I can find

It all started with Barrington Barber
From his books I tried to draw
Then I received some paints and an easel
And I tried to paint what I saw

I paint for my enjoyment
It puts me in a better place
And I paint for other people
So I can put a smile on their face

I love the use of vibrant colours
Though I never stick to the rules
I have no formal training
The internet and books are my school

I try to present an alternative view
To the sometimes stark world around me
And use my over active imagination
To put on canvas what my mind can see

Buildings are quite often a regular theme
Street signs and traffic lights also play a part
Sometimes they are bent and twisted
But that's what sets them apart

I have recently discovered digital art
And photography is also a passion
I'll do anything I can find
To satisfy my urge for creation

The critics will have a field day
When they don't see what they want to see
But I hope they will forgive me
Because I'm just being me
