I'm a restless artist always trying new ways to imagine the world I inhabit and perceive. I have been working for over 20 years in Melbourne, Australia. My artwork is a refection of the way my mind works or doesn't work. I always considered myself to be an image maker without telling stories or illustrating any particular history of the world. However, as years have passed I have come to realize that my art is really and simply about the story of "Me". The history part comes in once I realized that my style has been an exploration of the history of art and mark-making. It's fair to say I have no "style", but rather an arsenal of techniques and application methods. It's what I believe all artists are motivated about. The image created is the most important part of my art. An apparition of a new world born from a racing mind to inhabit an abyss of a blank surface.
My art when studied in sequence one day, will chronicle my state of mind from the beginning of my career to the end of my life. It will showcase what my Bi-polar disorder looks like in pictures over the course of an artist's lifetime. It's an illness that through art, can illustrate a restless manic state, various phases of inactivity and a return to a mode of working with strangely different styles after so many interruptions. I constantly ask myself, "Now, where was I. ?"
