"I am a self-taught artist and have travelled and worked as a shearer and a nurse in rural New Zealand to remote areas of Australia, exploring places like Alice Springs, Mornington Island, the East Kimberleys, Far North Queensland and Western Australia.

It is from these remote places that I draw from my memories and experiences and the colours I use to try to evoke the remote splendour of rural Australia. I am a sufferer of PTSD and depression and art has enabled me to express and lose myself in the moment.

I am now based in the Northern Rivers region of NSW.

 My art is evolving and as I let my feeling and emotions dictate the direction of a canvas, a deep sense of satisfaction and peace comes over me."
