I was born in San Francisco to hippie parents in the year of the dragon, 1976. 4 years later I was shipped off to Sydney, Australia, where I’ve been based ever since.
My interest in art began with “Mad” Magazine and “Conan” comics. After graduating from High School I completed a three year Diploma of Fine Arts from Meadowbank TAFE before gallavanting around the world for a couple of years, gathering inspiration and an assortment of tropical diseases. Since 1997 I have worked extensively within the film and television industry, as a scenic artist, set painter, props maker and set dresser.
In mid 2013 I completed a Bachelor of Art Education Degree from COFA (College of Fine Arts, Sydney) and have now commenced my long anticipated career as a High School Visual Arts and Photography & Digital Media Teacher.
I remain committed to my own artmaking practice and in recent years I have been experimenting with various recycled materials and found objects such as toys and vintage paintings to create works spanning collage, painting, photomedia and sculpture.
