"I am a Cairns based artist working in an multi-disciplinary practice in sculpture, painting in acrylic and watercolour, public art and drawing. Ideas and themes may switch between the mediums with time and location but hopefully reflect something of my far north Queensland environment in colour, form and concept."

Since his art college days the artist has established tropical gardens featuring rare palms in Brisbane, Innisfail and Cairns.
