About:

My art aims to show urban Australians a glimpse of what contemporary life is like in Central Queensland. My intention is to illustrate in a non-confrontational way, some of the realities experienced by people in the area. My intention is that my art may perhaps help others better understand the complexities of life for people in this region.
