I guess this can be taken a number of ways. Especially around Christmas time, when family issues can bubble to the surface. The words just came out when I sat down to write – and I didn’t bother filtering them.

I am a Melbourne based artist.
I communicate through a mix of traditional and digital media.

    I love this so much. Hits home and explains my sentiments exactly. Steve, you are a genius.

  • Such praise from one of the most talented photographers on RB. I may have to update the testimonials section of my resume :)

    Sometimes my visual work hits home and sometimes it’s my words (and sometimes neither). I feel particularly vulnerable with my words and therefore am more pleased when people connect with them. Thank you.
