Alaska Journals, 2016

In 2016, I spent four weeks traveling through Alaska with Alizon Gray. We camped for two weeks in the wilderness of Denali National Park, and drove around what small parts of the state as are accessible by road. I documented much of the trip in my sketchbooks, or in drawings I developed upon returning to my studio. Some of these can be bought as prints from my online store.

Wilderness Heart, 2016

Throughout 2016, I worked on a series of drawings of mountains and other wilderness areas. Much of this was to get some practice in before taking my own trip to Alaska. Having grown up in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales, I do like to draw forests and mountains when I can!

Private Commissions

I enjoy working on private commissions, as they afford me a chance to dedicate a block of time to one artwork, and to use the best materials I have (that I often wouldn’t use for art that is designed for reproduction).

I am often asked to make a ‘house portrait’ to capture a much loved home with more life than a photo. I’m also asked to reinterpret photographs of locations the client has been to, and put a bit of my usual energy into it!

For a quote or to discuss an idea, get in touch!
