I am a drawing artist living on Australia's sunny Gold Coast.
Like a lot of artists, I have been drawing since I was a child. Dad bought me my first set of Derwent Artist colour pencils and mum uncovered my masterpieces drawn on the underside of the family coffee table!
I have been told I am down-to-earth in my creative approach. I welcome the description as I firmly believe art skills are attainable by anyone. It takes dedication, hard work and practice, rather than wishful thinking and an artsy-fartsy smock!
ABOUT MY PROCESS
I am best known for my diverse subjects and detailed works that catch the eye. Primarily working with colour pencil and graphite, I specialise in expressing realism through my technique.
My work is often inspired by something offbeat, situations of everyday life, nature or my travels. Some pieces tell a clear story, others allow the view to derive their own meaning and connection.
Creating deliciously detailed subjects with no more than a sharp millimetre of pencil to do the job is no easy feat. It requires many hours, sometimes weeks and months, to build up the pigment, particularly on a large scale. My meticulous technique ensures the artwork has a depth of realism and can captivate its viewers.
Works of art are valuable, one-of-a-kind pieces that should be preserved at their original degree of quality for as long as possible. As a professional artist I only use the highest quality archival materials available to ensure longevity, sourcing supplies from the worlds leading professional artist brands.
