How would you describe what you do to someone who hasn’t seen your art?
I love spending time outdoors exploring the world around me, and I am particularly drawn to the coast. Inspired by the interplay of light and nature’s elements, my aim is to capture the raw beauty of my environment. I prefer to keep my photography as organic as possible, so that the images represent nature as you see it.
Where are you based?
I am based on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria. This is where I grew up. After moving away for a number of years to study, work and travel, I returned here to raise my family. The open spaces, the trees and the beautiful beaches are such a drawcard, and a constant source of inspiration.
How long have you been practicing as an artist?
I have had a camera in my hand since I was in primary school, following in the footsteps of my father who always seemed to be taking photographs when I was young. My photography has taken me in different directions over the years, ultimately leading to the creation of a fine art print range in 2016.
What is your studio like?
My studio is at The Nook Gallery in the Mornington Industrial Estate. There is a thriving creative community here, and I am fortunate to be surrounded by so many talented, fun and supportive co-workers. My time here is usually spent meeting with clients, signing, and packing prints ready for collection or shipping, always with music on in the background.
What materials do you use?
I choose to print on heavyweight archival cotton rag paper. The texture and matt finish suit the subject matter of my images, and has a minimalist look that I love.
Where can people find your work?
My work is available online through my website and also through a number of stockists whose details can be found on my website. Print viewings at the studio are available by appointment.
