My work and style is influenced by expressionism. I'm more interested in the way colour, shapes, textures and patterns create inner emotions, than trying to depict a 'photograph'.
I have been told that my painting has a uniquely Australian style. I'm not sure what that is, but I'm very much influenced by Sidney Nolan, Reg Mombassa and Ken Done. My work is somewhere between fine art and commercial/pop art.
I grew up in Geelong and I use to love just sitting and watching the boats on the bay. The Norfolk Island pine trees and date palms.
Or this could be Port Philip Bay in Melbourne.
