  • Artist’s Statement

    The paintings I make are a kind of mirror which allows glimpses of spiritual insight into the numinous. Each piece strives towards that technical mastery shown by figures such as Rembrandt and Titian whilst also putting on display those timeless human mysteries and drama which are often rooted within the archetypal and subconscious.

  • Biography

    Born in Redcliffe Qld, 1987 currently residing in Dalby Queensland as a working oil painter in the classical or old master method.

  • Influences

    Rembrandt, Titian and Odd Nerdrum.
