About The Artwork

a theme I return to often, in parallel with all the other themes I return too :) this work is from my series of dance/ ballet works, inspired by my love of dance, and memories of seeing swan lake as a young and impressionable boy. the work was drawn on vintage book pages adhered together and hand inked with Japanese brushes and using sumi-e ink , gouache and crayon, this original work ready to frame as desired.. Over 50 works from this series of dance works in all media have been sold and reside in private and corporate collections in more than 25 countries throughout the world.. Please Note - all artworks are sprayed with museum quality archival clear fixative and are sent with a hand written thank you note and a Certificate Of Authenticity.

Art..........Cartoon............Thought "Right now I like making ink drawings on adhered together sheets of vintage book paper, there is a fragility to these images that I find interesting (as if the wind may blow them away at any moment) and the hand drawn stark black lines against the intricate printed words of the book pages offer a strange fusion and depth that seems to give the images a kind of 'meaning' and back story, even though unconnected in a contrived way. I never pick the image for the pages or visa-versa they just collide as chance permits, any meaning they may have is purely created by the observer and their own imaginings." I have drawn since childhood and as other children stop at some point in their development I never did. I draw obsessively every single day filling books with ideas, cartoons and drawings. So my drawing abilities seem to have developed in natural progression giving me the ability to freely use a number of distinct styles and approaches. I have formally studied commercial and graphic art and hold an advanced certificate in visual communication. I was employed and served as an 'illustrator reprographic' in the Australian Army, This job included regimental photography and related darkroom procedures , endless map and other drawings old skool freehand and 3d model making. I have held several solo exhibitions, and have been included in numerous group and collective shows. My work has been acquired and is included in interesting private,corporate and public collections and many Hotels throughout the world. My illustrations, cartoons and artworks have been reproduced in books and other printed periodicals. I am a self represented full time artist. I primarily like to work with ink on paper, but am versed with oils and acrylics and enjoy making and using collage and creating sculpture. I live on the Gold Coast in Queensland Australia where I have two studios and have a third studio in Fitzroy Melbourne which I visit several times each year to do street art. I immigrated to Australia from Europe with my parents when I was a young child. I have traveled extensively throughout the world The rest is yet to come. thank you for your interest.
