This website documents my work since 2003.

Previous to then my art-making was sporadic, as I pursued various other career ideas. In 2003 I left the distractions of city living in the East to settle into dedicated art-making in rural South Australia. My practice has been highly influenced by the physical environment of the SA Mid North. Initially I was moved by the vivid colours and atmospheric light. The broad views of its wide valleys lead me to develop a collage approach to representing landscape which has become a method of working that addresses time and movement in relation to place. I have also used a similar methodology to examine built environments and interior spaces.

The studies represent my intention to constantly experiment with and broaden my technique. Painting from nature provides a different set of challenges which positively influences my studio work.
