Art to me is an expression of your true self, your soul. When I create a portrait, I am tuning into the subject’s essence and personality, and connecting with who they are, not just how they look in the reference photo. Only in this way can I create art that really depicts a person’s interior as well as their exterior, thus portraying their essence as well as their physical appearance.


My greatest reward for what I do is to see people’s reactions to my work and to share an intimate emotional experience with another human being.

I have so much gratitude for my talent because it really is the gift that keeps on giving.

in 2011 I began studying for a Bachelor of Visual Arts degree at Adelaide Central School of Art.

I later extended my skills and studied to obtain a Diploma of Graphic Design at Adelaide College of the Arts.

I am available for commissions and I have hundreds of delighted customers around the world, many of whom continue to return. 

I have exhibited in SALA as well as various other public exhibitions, and I have a strong online presence in many galleries and

e-commerce sites, selling original paintings and drawings,

as well as prints.

I am also available for graphic design work as a fully qualified freelance graphic designer.
