• As a Western Australian I am drawn to vast, warm, open spaces. Growing up, my Grandparents lived in Broome, a 2300 km journey north of Perth. Pindan, termite mounds, spinifex and the Indian Ocean - childhood places have a way of permeating your core.

    Moving to Tasmania as an adult, I encountered hauntingly beautiful landscapes that were alien to me. I felt most comfortable in the open plains and beaches. In the damp forests, one can sense the island’s dark past lurking just below the surface of Tassie’s current veil of ecotourism, gourmet food and MONA. 

    Feeling overwhelmed by this complex place, I looked to the pragmatist Giorgio Morandi, who said; “The only interest the visible world awakens in me concerns space, light, colour and form”
