As an amusing but true story: For me, art began at the age of five when I chose to follow an ant for a day. I remember its journey vividly; it traveled across the cracked soil and dry grass. I recorded the line of its journey and that became the first line I remember drawing. It’s a reference I return to again and again in my work.
At 19, I was put under the wing of one of Australia’s great abstract expressionist painters, Ron Lambert (1923-1995). It was then I began intensely experimenting with paint and engaging in intertextual projects, including The Lady of Shallot, a painting that only took the length of time that Alfred Lord Tennyson’s poem was recited. Since this time, I have enjoyed producing and exploring art, stories and subjects, influenced by other disciplines.
