My paintings visually reflect on the Arcadian ambience of the coastal landscape, and the Australian identity with the land. Australia is a wonderful country and I find it interesting how we interact with nature and the various four seasons. I like to put a feeling of adventure history and narrative in my paintings Often I title the works to tie in with music.
