I thank God I get to create art it gives me a lot of joy. Art is a luxury because it takes time and space to create and both are expensive commodities in the modern world.
My first exposure to art was cartoons and comics, I liked the colour and the line. This style of illustration is called Ligne Claire which is French for clear line. Artists use flat colours and black line to create depth and there is little shading. I add the colour patterns and lines over the colour to create a more dynamic feeling.
I was born in Sydney and moved to Cairns in Far North Queensland, at the turn of the century. I have been creating art for my whole life. My first inspiration was comics and cartoons and I have a lot of nostalgia for them. I've had a number of exhibitions around Cairns and Far North Queensland and am active in the Cairns art community.
