I live and work on a rural property outside of Bungendore, NSW not far from Canberra, ACT. The subject of my work is the bush landscape of arid Australia, though I find subject matter that informs my artwork in many environments. I consider myself to be an artist of portraits as well. This web site features paintings and drawings of both modalities and provides a glimpse of my art practice and some insight into the ideas that generate the drawings and paintings that I make.

The Gallery section shows a sample of artworks, both landscape and portrait, organised chronologically to show the continuum and progression of my practice. The Projects section presents work chronologically and thematically.
