I work with the landscape. Born on the South Coast of Victoria in the coastal town of Warrnambool, my inspiration has been driven by my love and fear of the sea. I observe its power and its subtleties, its effects and influences. In my paintings and sculpture I explore the themes of stability and change: of our human need to strive for new ground, while often suffering a sense of loss and displacement as we transition through life.
