After years of art practice, coupled with a degenerative lifestyle that found me impoverished, I was questioning my choice of career. I joined a sculpture group at the Linden Gallery, St. Kilda where we did life studies. In those moments I found complete solace, I had found an art form without the guilt attached to "selling out". Working with clay, the intent has become a pure form of self expression. This purity has been reflected back into my paintings and illustrations, and I have been combining these, with an influence of graphic symbolism, into my emerging body of work.
