Speaking & Demonstrating

Where most artists work in isolation, I am a fast painter and I enjoy working in public. I can be installed in a visible space and create a large scale imaginative artwork, or interact with people as I paint. The work can be a response to a place and event, or crafted to engage an audience in a particular way.

My event activity ranges from wedding receptions, children's book fair demonstration in Australia and internationally, school talks and workshops, festivals, university and professional development presentations, and as a working gallery installation.

Please contact me to discuss your event.

Inspiration for much of my work flows from the fashion, architecture and design of the 1920s-50s, with the narrative elements that I have perfected as an illustrator. The resulting work has a strong style, with a little theatrical flair and a narrative edge which draws the viewer to engage with the work. Throw in the freedom of a little surreality and we have memorable works that people can see brought to life before their eyes. And don't worry - no overalls, no mess.
