"Twisted Realism" A visual artist, creating moody black and white tonal drawings in charcoal, pastel and graphite. Inspired by the human figure, story telling and Europe.


"A Life Of Cube" (114.5 x 76.5cm) Charcoal, pastel and graphite on paper.

The artist lives a life of observation and questions. 
They respond with visual commentaries.

The cube appeared after my first trip overseas. My initial concerns of not being able to survive in countries with strange languages, signs, timetables, currencies and customs soon gave way to the excitement of these differences. I realized I could adapt, and that in fact I was a very self contained, self sufficient and adaptable package. A box of capabilities. Place me anywhere in the world, and I could survive. 
I place myself in my art as a cube. And onto the faces are tattooed the icons that are pictorial representations of my journey so far.
