Landscape archive

My first works were inspired by an abiding love affair with the power of cinema and the motifs that visual genre has fed me since watching films as a regular ritual with my family throughout my youth. We would regularly go to the city on a weekend and watch 2 movies with lunch in Chinatown in between. When I came to painting later in life, those early cinematic images etched into my mind combined with the Tasmanian landscape as my muse set my course as a landscape painter. Like any Grand Amore, landscape is a theme I return to again and again no matter how far I roam, with the never-ending beauty of trees and the sky constantly beckoning me back.
