Dave (me) is a Melbourne based photographic and multimedia artist. Currently undertaking a Masters of Multimedia at Monash University.

Passionate photographer in high school, went on to the old Brighton Bay to do extended studies in photography and media in 1993. This was followed by a Bachelor of Fine Arts, majoring in photography at the Victorian College of the Arts, graduating in 1996.

This was followed buy a stint working as a photographer on cruise ships which provided an education in the follies and grandeur of humankind.

Upon returning from ships completed a Graduate Diploma of Education, majoring in Visual Arts in 2001, and taught for a few years in Melbourne’s north and west.

Dave’s (my) work explores the place of the individual in society, and how a person’s soul and beliefs are shaped and defined the the fictional needs and strictures of the larger society, the work provides a way out from this emotional and ethical morass and into a greater joy.

I think art should be fun too.
