Paint and pixels

I am a digital designer and abstract artist based in Sydney. After 20 years in the design industry I’m refocusing on my passion for art and swapping pixels for paintbrushes. 

Having lived in Sydney’s Inner West for over 15 years, my art reflects the beauty of imperfection that I see in my daily wanderings - cracked walls, rusty house numbers, textured walls and ripped posters. I see this as ‘magic in the mundane’ and love taking these elements and portraying them in unexpected and beautiful colours. 

I like to work directly onto the canvas, with little more in mind than a colour palette. This allows me to truly embrace the freedom of abstraction and let my intuition steer the work. My works often feature typographical elements, a nod to my years as a designer and a key point of interest in my work that draws people in and starts conversations.
