I am an emerging visual artist after spending a lifetime in and around the performing arts. I was active with the 9-2-5 poetry collective, have been in a number of bands and have performed plays in Banyule. I was born and raised in East Preston. I have performed onstage in Basel, Switzerland on a number of occasions and played in a number of community based festivals in Switzerland. I paint and create mixed media pieces in a neo-modernist style drawing on a number of influences such as cubism, expressionism and Dada. My photography is of a more stage mock documentary style. I am inspired by nature and the natural surrounds of where I live in Banyule is life affirming.
