With many years working in the industry as a designer, I have vast experience across a broad range of broadcast and video post-production. From film and television to corporate video, my career has seen me focus primarily on motion design. For many years of those years, I ran a successful business, servicing post-production companies around Sydney and working on many successful projects. In 2010, I decided to shift my focus back on my own artistic works, which was supported by finding a studio at Lennox Street Studios, in the inner city Sydney suburb of Newtown. So when I had some down time on a job, I went off to the studio for the day.

So what did I do before those years in design? Well, I painted! I have always had a studio since I was 17 years old. But the years of living off banana smoothies and toast had me succumb to working in the design industry, which for the most part I totally loved, but I certainly don’t miss the late night renders!

I love what I do and have enjoyed the colourful journey it has taken me on. I grew up in Melbourne, Australia and there I went to art school, firstly RMIT (Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology) where I did a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts, then on to Victorian College of the Arts to complete a Post Graduate Diploma in Fine Art. Later, another change saw me move to Sydney, where I studied at the University of Western Sydney and completed a Masters in Design.

Now working as a full-time artist here in Australia, I live back in Sydney, having done a tour of duty in Hong Kong and Singapore for a number of years after leaving Sydney.

I have a strong passion for the arts: it is my life! I love what I do and have enjoyed the colourful journey it has taken me on.
