About

Info

I make paintings which develop alongside a process of image collection and collage. Using pictures from books, magazines and my own photographs, the works are conversations with and within the painted surface. They embody the idea of painting as a puzzle, each piece interacting by an unseen logic and overlapping and intersecting to create its own distinct rhythm.

I’m represented by Daine Singer, Melbourne
and Gallery 9, Sydney.
