I grew up on a small rural property near Warrnambool in the Western District of Victoria where my surroundings inspired me to draw, paint and learn. My preferred subject matter has always been and continues to be landscapes, plants and animals. 

In recent years my fascination with the natural world has followed an academic route that includes a PhD in biology. My scientific studies have provided new perspectives, bringing a deeper focus on the character and detail of my subject matter, and rekindled a passion for painting in which I am now indulging. 

My aim with my artwork is to capture an animal as accurately as possible with all of is subtle detail and expression. I see drawing and painting a particular animal as an opportunity to learn more about it and I try to capture my understanding of the animal and its environment in my work. Wherever possible I try to spend time observing the animal in the wild as I feel this produces a better result.
