Me teaching photography

A nature explorer turned artist

I use photography and art to raise awareness about the beauty and frailty of wildlife in our immediate vicinity.

I have held solo exhibitions in Australia, Germany, and Finland, and while my home base is Sydney, Australia, I spend most of his time travelling the world.

Artist Statement

If people could see nature through my eyes, they would love it and want to protect it just like I do.

It is the nature near them they can learn to see first, and this is what my art shows them.

I go to places anyone can visit, the backyard, the neighbourhood park, the tree on the roadside, or the wasteland near a construction site.

​I immerse myself in the environment and look for movement. Any movement will do:

a flying bird, a jumping insect, a lizard. I learn their pattern until I can anticipate their next move.

 

Each movement is fleeting and faster than the eye can see, making every photo a new surprise. ​

After I capture a photo, I decide what it wants to become. Sometimes it wants to stay as is, but other times it needs total transformation, so I change it using mixed media. I am not concerned with tools or technics. For me, images are about creating a viewing port to the beauty of nature as I feel it.
