Capturing the essence of place.
Transporting you to claim, still moments of reflection in awe of the sublime.

Savor your connection with the sea.
The Great Ocean Road and beyond - recent paintings.
Special reminders of time and place, that transport you to a state of nostalgia, forward to aspiration, or to a vision of calm, far from daily stresses.
It's a scientifically proven fact that spending time in and around the ocean can reduce stress and change levels of certain hormones in the body - I have no doubt that this is true and if you've spent time in or around the ocean I'm sure you agree.
The art I create is a tribute to the wild places on earth. In documenting these natural instances, it's like a kind of rediscovery, an unrushed observation of locations and moments in time.
I take great care in creating each piece, ensuring I capture the drama and presence of a place I get to know by spending time in its company - sometimes over many years. Aiming to represent a moment in time, in a place that will never be the same again - such is the sea.
