ABOUT THE ARTIST
My work is inspired by the simplicity of the suburban streetscape; the paradise of domesticity. I see beauty in the everyday. I feel that artists David Hockney, Reg Mombassa and Howard Arkley view the mundane world with a similar sense of admiration.
After spending decades of my life abroad, I return to the quaint landscape of the Mornington Peninsula in my artistic mind. It has always been, and will remain a uniquely beautiful location to me; associated with nostalgia, but also brimming with potential for the future.
These seemingly ordinary landmarks: telegraph poles, houses, fences, road signs and suburban streets, are scenes of home. I don’t feel the need to travel anymore, as my own backyard serves as my private oasis. To me, there is no place like Australia.
