My style is contemporary whilst firmly rooted in realism. I work in a number of mediums, including pastel, charcoal and conte, pen and ink, gouache, watercolour, acrylics, pencil, photography, and mixed media, and am currently painting in oils. I find that changing and experimenting with mediums keeps me fresh and open to learning. I especially love capturing the human face and figure in oils, and photographing the urban landscape, including the amazing graffiti to be found in Melbourne.

    very well done… Pirates are VERY hard to capture without them looking like a Motorcycle gang member.. Especially in a painting.. this looks like it stepped right out of the 1800’s :) congrats!!!

  • Thanks for your kind comment, GolemAura!
