Artist Statement
Expression, a face, emotion, the body. This is the focus of my contemporary figurative art. The works are sensual, the lines flowing and connected revealing the sense of connection we have to our bodies and our minds. Feeling, texture, dimension, these works invite contact, extended viewing. I employ texture and light to communicate to the viewer, not only visually but via touch as well. These paintings and drawings reach out to you, to something inside. they should pull you in headfirst with feeling.

People each receive different feelings from my works, My aim is to inspire emotion within the viewer, to allow them to feel a powerful connection. My pieces may be distorted, abstracted, realistic, textural, expressionistic, impressionistic or traditional.

The nude body is a beautiful, sensual, expressive entity. We communicate through so much more than our voices and resonate feelings through body language. Every size is beautiful when the person inside shines out, embrace individuality.

Solo Show! Purity

I am booked in for my first Solo Show! It’s a short term engagement at a really fantastic location in Box Hill. The gallery has wonderful natural light and a really interesting layout that I think will be perfect for my white Impasto works.
