How would you describe your artwork?
My artwork conveys my passion and dedication towards worthy draughtmanship.
What does making art mean to you?
A sense of wellbeing and purpose. As well as being able to communicate ideas and concepts through a visual medium and creating my own visual language is important.
How did you get started making art?
It was really the only subject at school I liked and was good at. I have always been determined to make it my career, having acquired a Bachelor of Fine Arts many years ago.
What is it like to be a part of The Other Art Fair?
The Other Art Fair gave me the opportunity to expose my work to a whole new audience and sell my work.
What is your favourite piece for sale on your Saatchi Art profile and why?
‘Great Bay, Bruny Island’, as it is a work I laboured over for sometime and I ended up very happy with the result. Bruny Island, Tasmania is also possibly my favourite place in Australia.
