Everything I see around me gets painted on my minds canvas.

As a child I spent a lot of time in the bush, on the banks of the Darling River, fishing and catching frogs with my brother. We sat under a large tree whilst Elders told stories of the Dream Time.

Although I am a visual artist, my one true love is contemporary Indigenous art. It takes me back to my roots, my Grandfather and ancestors before him, and my home land of the Central and North Western area of NSW.

My art reflects on everything Australian, from animals and trees to the red dirt and sky, using traditional colours and involving a range of tones to create depth. I hope collectors and art lovers alike find their own meaning in my works, and appreciate the connection I feel through my painting, to a time long past but still strong within myself.
