Painter - Sculptor - Potter
BA (Fine Art and Visual Culture) 2016
My aim is to bring a smile to the face of the viewer.
I am a practicing artist living at Palmwoods on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland.
In 2016 completed a Bachelor of Art majoring in Fine Art and Visual Culture from Curtin University in Western Australia. I graduated with high distinction as well as gaining a place on the Curtin University's Vice Chancellor's list. My thesis discussed the giant Satinay trees found on Fraser Island. I examined the dendrochronology of these ancient trees through sculpture, drawing, painting and film.
Today, my practice is multi-disciplinary in series and includes work with a strong design element highlighting the use of colour, light, shade, tone and value as well as abstract works based on my emotional response to nature and the environment. I also dabble in sculptural works in clay. Occasionally I delve into portraiture in the style of Banksy when I am motivated by something that is happening around me, I will paint a contemporary figure. For example, I saw the movie Bohemian Rhapsody and felt inspired to paint a picture describing Freddie Mercury.
My influences are:
Thancoupie, an indigenous sculptor and ceramic artist,
Banksy, the illusive urban artist and social commentator, and
Maurits Escher, whose mathematical art is a triumph in repetition, geometry, perspective, reflection. symmetry, tessellation, light and shade.
