Born and raised in Fremantle and surrounding southern suburbs, in beautiful Western Australia.
The Swan River’s edge, the coast, the port city - that is where I call home.

I spent my childhood lost in my grandparent’s floral jungle.

In hindsight, I now know this garden taught me about beauty, passion, kindness, gratitude,
joy and community in ways that I doubt anything else could ever have done.

Today, I am constantly searching for ways to share my view of the natural world with others,
ideally to provide a similar experience of happiness, connection and awe.

I have a keen interest in native flora (and fauna), and by showcasing these in my artworks, I hope that viewers will learn something about themselves, each other and the world around them.

While I am still developing my practice in many ways, I will always create my artwork with the
intention of inspiring people to learn, smile, laugh, cry, talk to each other, share, pay more attention
to their surroundings and to value the unique splendour of natural world.
