Surf ’n Turf

Wuppertal, Germany, 2013

As a landscape painter asked to show in Germany, I was not surprised that I wanted to paint my Australia.

My life in Australia has been divided rather evenly into 2 parts: my years growing up in Horsham, Victoria — a typical midsized country town surrounded by flat, dusty plains where farmers grew sheep and wheat; and my years in Sydney, one of the worlds most picturesque cities, living a fast lifestyle surrounded by idyllic beaches and bays.
