The eternal landscape endures the ravages of time, weather and climate.
My paintings visually reflect on the Arcadian ambience of the coastal landscape, and the Australian notion of an identity within utopia. Climate is what we expect, weather is what we get.
My portraits dip into the psych of the personality.
