From the artist

I have a deep affinity for the land, it’s a place for immersion, to experience and be absorbed.

I have fond memories of Cradle Mountain, with its alpine heaths, overland tracks, rugged terrain, as well as its diverse flora and fauna.
My work taps into the emotional gravity of this place, its memory, its pulse, its rawness and power. For me the paintings communicate a deep-felt relationship with the earth, embodying a spirit of place and its atmosphere.
