’Because it took me so long to get back into painting it is both a relief and an exhilarating release. Impelled by these emotions I try to grasp that moment before it vanishes, to find structure and clarity in the maelstrom of suburban existence.

As an Australian (and more particularly a Melburnian) I am fortunate in my influences, aware but not over burdened by European artistic traditions. I have also absorbed something of a sparseness and spatial proportions of indigenous art. These contrasting styles of representing the human condition form a fruitful dynamic and my paintings which deal with natural forms, with water, rocks and trees are a synthesis of these contrasting forces.’
