Modern contemporary mixed media composed of acrylic paint, house paint and graphite pencil abstract landscape painting on masonite board titled "Stairway to Elysium".
Stairway to Elysium, the name Elysium referred to Greek mythology in which heroes on whom the gods conferred immortality were sent to this land of perfect happiness at the end of the Earth. This painting, this dream-like state of abstraction of Mornington foreshore is a reminder of how lucky we are to live in Australia and for some of us in Melbourne, the Elysium plain, this land of perfect happiness in the Mornington Peninsula. The painting is new and in excellent condition, it is signed with monogram on bottom right corner. Set in a modern wooden frame and is approximately 94 x 64 x 4cm in size.
For peace of mind we also supply a CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY signed by the artist for that 100% guarantee of authenticity. 
The frame is approximately 94 x 64 x 4cm in size.
Mixed media on masonite board.



I have always had an interest in art and was drawing at a very young age, and pride myself on being a self taught artist. Specialising in portraiture and figurative, but equally adept in still life and landscape, I am very adaptive and versatile to a broad range of styles with a preference to classical, abstract and contemporary as well as materials and processes, including oils, acrylics, screen printing, etching, lino, pencil, pen and pastelI. I have a great passion creating commission pieces for both private and commercial use. I work closely with my clients to ensure that all criteria is met. I actively participate in art exhibitions both local and abroad for which I have won awards. I create pieces both emotive and dramatic, using techniques that I have developed over the course of my career.

Artist Statement


My artwork is ever-changing, takes many forms and expresses my views, from social, political, personal experience to colour, light, dark and beauty. Often referencing on the social/political issues, experience and explores the relationships between them, myself and art. Having engaging subjects as diverse as humanity, nature and a broad interest on most things, my work reproduces familiar visual cues, arranging them in my mind projecting and layering them on various materials, processes with each piece. Although usually each piece is different, they are all linked through visual markers or subject matter. The subject matter will determine the form and materials of each work and sometime each work will consist of a range of different mediums. The more I learn and experience the more new areas of interest arise and lead to the next piece of work.
