Welcome to my studio!

Contemporary Melbourne artist, working in oil and acrylic.

My paintings are inspired by people, places and events, and are influenced by my love of 20th century abstract modern art.

While a lot of my art tells stories, I’m  sometimes inspired by the shapes & textures of quite ordinary everyday objects.  I’m always working to challenge and further develop my forms of expression.
