Originally with a background in computer science, in recent years I have rediscovered and built upon my true passion for painting. I delved into a Masters of Curating and Cultural Leadership at UNSW Art and Design, then picked up a paintbrush for the first time in many years, and officially rekindled my love of portraiture and figurative painting.
I completed my studies in fine arts at the Julian Ashton Art School, receiving the Brett Whiteley Scholarship for full time study in 2016 and graduating with my diploma in fine arts in 2017.
