Growing up in a small town to a single parent family presented its own challenges for me
early in life. From an early age I was independent, working menial factory jobs to
support myself through an education and the dream of a career. My awakening came
while working in a chicken processing plant. The only motivator was to escape this trap
and acquire an education. The long repetitive hours made more determined to pursue
my dreams. I now hold a degree in Computer Science and an Associate degree of Arts
Eventually, unsatisfied with what the world presented, I spent over six months living at a
Buddhist centre which changed my life, mindset and spirituality. This also gave me the
clarity to recognise that art is not a choice but a calling.
I have had five successful Solo exhibitions and been part of well over 100 physical group
events both nationally and internationally. Last year I showed in over 50 events!
My art has travelled far and wide from Melbourne, Sydney, London, Paris, New York, LA,
New Orleans, Rome, Venice, Istanbul, Germany, Madrid, Barcelona to Uruguay, Rio just
to name a few places!
Also a long history of short films/projection art/animations/moving images that have
been screened all over Australia and the world since 2006!
My work continues to grow and evolve pushing the boundaries at every opportunity.
Says the artist about whether:
I am influenced by Street Artists such as Bansky and Beejoir who fearlessly portray alternate views. Their courage inspires me to be fearless in expressing how I truly feel.
These artworks are inspired by my personal understanding of the world I inhabits and my own journey. The poetic visualisations portray the essence of my experiences and are translated into artworks that aim to touch others emotions and speak to their very core.
My work deals with deeply personal aspects of my life. I hope that my art goes beyond the borders of the human condition and speaks the truth in a universal way.
Grinding away at the heart we search for the light within, clouded by deeds, thoughts, feelings of darkness and a blurred reality we look for our true self.
I am dedicated and determined to make a difference in this world, my work is complex and intense. Images linger. The more you look, the more you are drawn into their hypnotic spell. On all levels, my work aims to resonates with the senses.
With five Solo shows and over one hundred Australian and international group shows my art has travelled
far and wide. I aim to reach out and make a positive difference. My art shows regularly in NYC, LA,
Venice, Rome, Paris, Barcelona, Madrid, London, and Melbourne. Highlights showing twice last year in the
Louvre (Paris), Time Square billboard, Venice and being represented by LACDA gallery.
