I am an Australian artist working in Sydney. My main medium is oil painting, though I also draw and work in mixed media. I came to art after previous careers in education, clinical psychology and management, and this background has influenced my artistic preoccupations. In my art I reflect on life and society, the operation of power, and environmental issues.
My artwork is conceptually based and involves considerable research. Generally, it has a social, psychological or philosophical emphasis. In form it is realistic, but the reality I present is symbolic or metaphorical rather than literal . My hope is to provoke a dialogue with the viewer about issues of contemporary life.
