I am an artist from Placid Hills, which is a lovely part of the world in south-east Queensland, Australia.

Most of my artwork is created with pastels or acrylics although i also like to experiment with unusual mediums such as coffee.
I love to capture snippets of the world around me in my artwork, although I sometimes like to create pure fantasy from my imagination as well. My goal in each piece is to create an emotional response from the viewer, such as taking them back to their childhood memories etc.
I have created numerous commissions for people ranging from portraits to landscapes and I’m always happy to create a special piece of artwork from photos that a client may have. A lot of my original artwork displayed here is available for sale. Please feel free to send me a message for more details.

I also now have a page on facebook.
