  • Artist Statement

    I received my visual education at the National Art School and Sydney College of the Arts.

     

    Figurative work has always been my focus with an emphasis on portraiture and life drawing. As a painter I find nothing more challenging than the human body in its infinitive myriad of forms.

     

    Working as an Art Therapist in mental health, has enriched my practice conceptually as I endeavour to represent the unseen as well as the corporeal.

     

    The artists who inspire and influence me most are Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, Edgar Degas, William Blake and Lucian Freud.
