Born in Australia, I spent a number of years working and training abroad in Japan where I was exposed to various kinds of traditional Japanese art and design.
Asian sensibilities and techniques continue to influence my work which is characterised by fluid and expressive brush strokes, atmospheric perspective and light.
My painting philosophy is to paint movement, the movement of light, colour and tone across the surface of any given object.
