I am a pictoral artist living in Jan Juc, Victoria. I grew up in New Zealand but fell in love with this rugged stretch of the coast with my studio and house surrounded by all its different surf breaks and bush. The main focus of my painting for the past few years has been the diverse and unique bird life of Australia. I create bold layered colourful paintings that capture the personalty of my subjects. My work is inspired by the natural world, in particular the diverse and amazing local ecology.
