I was born and raised on a farm on the Mornington Peninsula. I am an escapist at heart. I try to remind myself as often as I can that we will all revert back to the void someday, and use that as inspiration to create and understand my own mythology.
I am enamored by religious art and motifs. By narrative. The split second a piece of art captures in an otherwise constantly moving universe. I am motivated by death. Obsessed by the transience of life, and ephemeral nature of beauty in humans.
The ultimate truth 'we are born and we die' should inspire us all to continually do better.
In 2008, I studied Printing & Graphic Arts at RMIT TAFE which led to a job in graphic design with a landscape company. This only seemed to reinforce my suspicion that I was not comfortable in an office environment.
In 2011 I completed my Diploma of Visual Art at Chisholm Institute. Since then I have found immediate sharing of knowledge like in workshops most helpful, and paint by myself most days in my studio.
I am lined up to be one of the live painters at Rainbow Serpent Festival 2019.
