  • Artist’s Statement

    In colour or black and white, I endeavour to evoke a sense of calm and stillness for the viewer to experience. Currently I find my art work moving from realism towards fine art photography, where a montage of images are layered upon each other to create a composition for the viewer to imagine their own story.

  • Biography

    I am a local artist whose photographic art is designed to capture the minute and intricate detail of an ever-changing world of flora. While endeavouring to draw attention to the beauty of moments sometimes missed in the activeness of our life. My hope is that those who view my work will feel peacefulness, allowing their own minds to drift and listen to their own true thoughts. More recently I have experimented and expanded my works to include images that aim to blur reality into an alternate one, which allows the viewer to experience a sense of curiosity and create their own narrative.

    I have long held a passion for photography, with a majority of my life spent living on the Darling Downs where I have studied and experimented in photography. My love of this art form started when I had the opportunity to learn techniques used in the making traditional dark room prints.

    All prints are numbered, with only 10 produced per edition.

  • Influences

    Currently I am influenced by a strong need for a moment of reflection; a chance to breathe and contemplate. Artists Diana Brambila and Konsta Punkka for me demonstrate the tranquility of nature.
