I am currently inspired by places which have personal significance. These places are close to my home (on the Mornington Peninsula), or places that I have been to in my travels around Australia. In my paintings I aim to capture the feeling of seeing something new or unique.

I paint mainly from memory, without visual reference. Using this technique allows me to be less literal and more abstract. I can focus on the 'feel' of a place and also examine ideas of memory (or the distortion of memory).
