I grew up on Sydney`s northern beaches chasing after lizards, frogs, dogs, spiders and possums. I'm not sure when I first started drawing but I know that it first started to become an addiction after starting a life drawing class, once a week, at age 14. I fell in love with the visual sensation of flesh and have been trying to reproduce that feeling - somewhere between apprehension and intoxication ever since.
From there I went on to study Fine Art at National Art School, majoring in painting.
