ARTIST BIO

I am a passionate Australian painter having lived in Melbourne for most of my life. I started to draw and paint from a very young age and my art practice keeps me striving for excellence whilst being true to what I love to paint.

Through exhibitions I have had the privilege of being awarded many major prizes and my work has been published in Australian and international magazines and books, including the cover of Australian Artist (2006) and in a special supplement for the French magazine Pratique des Arts (2014). I hope you enjoy viewing my artwork, some of which are  available for purchase through Gallery 247.
