I’m a modern ‘en plein air’ (in the open air) artist traveling Australia with my mobile studio, paints and canvases; always chasing that perfect moment in time, where the light and landscape have come to life.
In my work I reflect the stunning complexity of the nature world with simplified mark making for the ultimate impressionistic effect.
It is difficult to describe the excitement and wonder I feel working direct from nature with my oil paints, large palette knives and brushes and I want to translate this energy to the canvas and try to express what I feel.
Chasing the light and that fleeting moment means I have to work fast and this gives my work a spontaneous freshness and feeling that deals largely with the beauty and wonder of our perceived world.
I am proud that my work is represented in collections around the world and I hope you enjoy it.
You can take a journey with me on my YouTube channel and observe this creative process unfolding in some of Australia’s most special locations and if you like it you can buy!
