The Ballad of Rock n Roll


I am a mixed media artist who likes to play with and mix up different mediums.

My current art practice involves something I like to call ' Op Shop Alchemy '.

I hunt the local op shops looking for objects both 2D & 3D that have a certain essence to them, a quality of coolness.

In the studio with music playing loudly, I do a creative/intellectual shuffle with the found objects that in the end creates a visual poem that asks questions, illuminates universal truths or just illustrates the big mystery we call life.
