My paintings communicate the geographical way in which I see the world. I have been fascinated by places and maps since I was a young child and have strengthened this fascination by obtaining a degree in Geography, working as a cartographer for 10 years and traveling extensively.
I draw inspiration from colour field painters, from Australian aboriginal art and from the graphic economy of design. My works explore the relationship between regular and irregular forms on a landscape. I work in all sizes of formats but I am strongly drawn towards large works on canvas. I aim to make my pieces a mixture of collage and uniformity; of visible layering; and, of repetition and variance. Ultimately, the works attempt to illustrate a non-verbal impression and sense of place.
