My work reflects a wide set of interests and influences including both skate, surf, and street culture and such art movements as Art Nouveau and Art Deco. I have recently embarked upon a series of portraits of indie rock and punk musicians, including such artists as Nick Cave, Pj Harvey, the Saints and Steve Albini. I am intrigued by the unglamorous gritty realism as well as the staunch defiance of convention that these figures offer. I have shown work at Bleeding Heart Gallery, Brisbane, Inverse Gallery, Burleigh Heads, Richmond Gallery in British Columbia.
