The Astor Theatre in St Kilda was built 1935-36. The Astor Theatre is architecturally significant as a highly intact, rare survivor of a Jazz Moderne, or Art Deco, style cinema.

Its façade includes a stepped parapet wall, a projecting bay flanked by three large recessed panels with casement windows, and a cantilevered awning with pressed metal ceiling. The projecting bay features an eight point star in bas relief with an illuminated neon sign and flanked by twelve illuminated, ascending stars. Beneath the theatre awning are four shopfronts and the theatre entrance. The side walls are red brick and the roof is corrugated iron.

My work embodies an appreciation of the beauty and wonder of life that surrounds me. The images in this gallery portray everyday subjects that captivate me, bring me joy or that strike a nostalgic cord. My art tends to be aesthetic in nature and reflects what I find visually and emotionally stirring. For me photography is a meditative process that awakens my senses, induces a sense of inner calm and allows me to completely lose myself in the present moment.
