I am a proactive and passionate visual artist, a “mixer “and “producer “of figurative culturally Australian inspired works. My artwork references Australian history, and iconography and explores the varying relationships between popular culture and fine art. My work appropriates, produces and mixes images from popular Australian culture which merge high and low art, and explore colour and shape. My artwork captures the viewer providing a sense of familiarity and enchantment within my culturally Australian inspired works.
I have a preoccupation with the formal elements of surface, space, pattern, and colour, and an intellectual interest in exploring place, narrative and identity. My artworks reflect elements of pop art, of post-modern appropriation, of formalism, and an appreciation of texture, line, colour and shape.
