1-When it comes to your art, explain what you do in 100 words: I am a self-taught artist based in Brisbane, specializing in capturing the beauty of wildlife and nature through my realistic oil paintings on canvas or linen. With a deep passion for the natural world, I bring these subjects to life on the canvas, conveying their intricate details and vibrant colours. Through my art, I aim to evoke a sense of wonder and appreciation for the wonders of the natural world.

2-What project are you working on now? Currently, I’m immersed in an oil painting depicting magpie birds joyfully perched on a jacaranda tree, serenading with their melodic tunes. This picturesque scene encapsulates the essence of Australia, showcasing the harmonious connection between nature and wildlife. It is my endeavour to transport viewers into this quintessentially Australian setting, evoking a sense of appreciation and wonder for the wonders of our unique landscape.
