For this show I have chosen locations from the South West of the state, an area of unparalleled natural beauty. After sifting through many of my photographs in search of references I settled on the scenes that best express the grandeur of the ocean in this part of the world.

I guess you could say that water flows through my work. I will rarely create a painting that does not include a representation of it. The first time I visited Rottnest back in the nineties was the beginning of my involvement with realism as an artist. Prior to that I was working in a more abstract fashion…the legacy of my art school years where realistic representation was not at that time the current approach. And so it was a liberating experience to simply try my best to represent something in paint. And I shall continue to do exactly that.”
