About me

Born in 1976 on a farm on the east coast of Australia. Moved to Sweden in 2011 permanently, now living and working in Stockholm.

The event of starting a painting feels a lot like I already have the punchline to a joke in my head, and my task is to write an anecdote to connect to that punchline. In other words my ideas seem to arrive mostly first and my task is to build a narrative, a journey to the final image and idea. Sometimes this idea is ambiguous, dreamy or psychedelic, other times it will arrive gritty and savagely honest.

Location:

    Oil on canvas, Acrylic, pencil, charcoal, pastel and gouache on paper.

    Inspiration:

    I am greatly inspired by science and nature and our place amongst it. I am fascinated by how little we know about the universe at large and this informs my daily creativity and art practice and gives endless surreal inspiration
