My Bio


Artist/illustrator/designer working from an adequate desk studio in the Inner-West of Sydney. My work is about the absurdity of life and living things, the tiny and unexpected, and the inherent beauty in strangeness. Sometimes it's about creating a window into a world. Sometimes it's meticulously fashioning an ornamental life form to be displayed on the good shelf. Sometimes it's just paint.

Hey team! It's been such a long time between drinks here, almost 3 years! Seeing this every time I revisited my DA page was kind of killing me. I'm sitting at my desk right now, staring at a white piece of paper in the sweaty heat. So here's a new journal entry for no reason other than to reach out to a community of like-minded artists, who may or may not even be there. In the time since the last journal entry here I've got a new design job at an advertising agency. I think I may have also moved house, and now have a nice little room as a dedicated studio space with all my things: I like it here. But tell me, how is your art journey going?

Greetings ! So...this is well overdue. It's been a whole year and more since my last journal entry here. That was a troubling time. Artistically, existentially. The digital and irl world was eating away at me and my productivity had hit a real low. Well, the good news is that in 2015 I managed to turn that around in some small but important ways. Yay! I was more compulsively productive than I'd been since my teens, though you'd never know that from my minimal presence here! ^^; I started working more on a smaller scale, almost like setting myself tiny, achievable goals. Most nights after long, creatively demanding days at work I would stay

Hello everyone. 5am has just gone by and I've realised that if I visit DeviantArt and pause for a little moment, and sit in the eye of the clutter and strange noises and gratuitous nudity to actually digest what I'm doing, what I've done here, what here has done for me, recall the names and avatars that have come and gone, smile at the familiar faces and the new ones...I get very sentimental. In a way, it's like peering into a series of time capsules, documenting my life and artistic state. In a way it makes me sad. I genuinely yearn for the time when I could maintain real interactions here, and was so excited to upload something new almost
