In my work the seduction of the surface, the vibrant colours, draw the viewer into the event of perception at the surface of the painting. This is reminiscent of issues taken up in modernist colour field painting: the holding of patches of colour that seduce the viewer.

My paintings are an attempt to explore our relationship to simpler modes of living that are more attuned to the natural environment. I live and work in Sydney where I am continuing my research and education in fine art.
