From the Artist ~

 

I’m a representational artist working with oil paint and more recently with digital art. At the beginning of this year I moved to Wagga Wagga from Melbourne, where I had been exhibiting and painting commissions since finishing my art studies five years ago. I rediscovered my love of art in my late twenties and have been working at it since.

I’m fascinated by colour and character and like to move between portraiture, figurative, still life and landscape paintings… why choose one? Each provides different challenges. Digital art has opened up some new directions for me and I am interested to see how this will affect my oil paintings.

Ultimately, my aim with my artworks is to evoke in the viewer the natural human interest or feeling of a scene or a character, and to hold the viewer’s attention. All of my interest in the formal elements of art is directed toward this goal.

If you are interested in my pictures please have a look at my website or follow me on instagram where I post my paintings and digital artwork. If you would like a commissioned work or would like to know more about having a painting made, please get in touch.
