Paint and pixels

I am a designer and artist, creating from my home studio in Sydney, mostly in the very late hours of the evening. After 15 years of pushing pixels as a digital designer, I'm swapping screen for canvas and getting my hands dirty again.

I am fascinated by the beauty of imperfection that I see in everyday things. Cracked pavements, rusted house numbers, textured walls and ripped posters. I see this as magic in the mundane and I aim to capture this in my work through colour, texture and layering.

I work in acrylics on canvas and paper with graphite, pencil, watercolour and pastels to add finishing touches and detail. My process involves addition and subtraction, layering paint with brushes and subtracting it again with any tool at hand – the edge of paint tubes, pencils, sticks. This is a process I repeat, with each layer of paint telling a part of the overall story.
