Nature is a fundamental influence for my art. Mostly through experiences I have in the natural world, interacting and exploring. A favourite pass time, outside art, is hiking through Tasmania’s National Parks. I take hundreds of photos because I never know what might influence a future artwork. However, I find the photos I take never do the scene justice. Being able to combine my own memories with my photos into an artwork enables me to bring back that sense of beauty lost in the photo whilst also adding my own personal touch. Whether my art has referenced nature directly through representational pieces, or on a more abstract level, there is always a link back to something I experienced firsthand. And that I think is what makes it so special.

The below are examples of some of the thousands upon thousands of photos I have taken. Now, I’m no photographer, these are more documentary than anything and often taken on my camera phone, but every photo is important in it’s own way. They’re like visual snap shots of my memories.
