Artist Statement

I am an artist based in Sydney, Australia. I like to create beautiful art in a digital realism style where painting technique creates the look of the modern world as we now perceive it through digital techniques. For many years I worked as a scenic artist creating sets and backdrops for film and television, painting very large images in film studios. It was high pressure and short deadlines but what a great time With the advent of computer graphics, I moved on to creating realistic animated content commercially, again specializing in environments and surface textures. But I have come back to painting, still the most satisfying medium. Portraits now, and skyscapes too, sometimes together on the same canvas. I work in oil and acrylic, painting our modern world both so rich and beautiful. I learnt so much from the modern disciplines film work, computer graphics, photography and found it all is relevant when painting. I use these modern elements to lift the image, to meet the expectations of the modern eye. Even flares, artifacts and scattering all work beautifully in oil to create a visually satisfying piece that is still clearly handmade, wrought by human creativity. Artists I admire are Elizabeth Vigee Le Brun, William Bouguereau and Marcel Marlier masters in the realistic style and technique they used in creating such believable skin tones....
