I currently live on a rural property in the lower mountains of NSW which has been my home for just over 10 years now and and it is where I get much of my inspiration from. I predominantly work with ink,acrylic paint and a soldering iron on MDF panels of varying shapes and sizes.

My background in both fine arts and theatre design informs my practice today, I have always had a love of drawing and the soldering iron has been a way for me to introduce drawing into the painted surface. I see the landscape as the most dramatic form of theatre there is and in terms of my compositions they have subconsciously ended up reflecting this sense of drama with my landscapes being presented to the viewer as though through the conventions of a proscenium arch stage, centre stage.
