I grew up in outback NSW in a vast and flat landscape of scrubland and red soil plains. It was the landscape of painters like Williams, Nolan, Olsen, Boyd and Drysdale to name a few. A time when rivers were not yet a commodity and when the pulse of the land could be felt in your feet.

There’s a back catalog of hundreds of drawings, paintings and prints that belong to the body of work produced; along with photographic media, over the years that encompass my creative practice. For whatever reason now seems to be as good a time as any to start to include them here.
Having been involved in the beta of Adobe Luca, it was a no brainer that when Adobe released ‘Slate’ on the App Store that I should dive into this with renewed enthusiasm. ‘Slate’ is a significant improvement on the beta and in hindsight I found that my earlier publications needed revisiting and that’s still ahead.
The latest iteration of SLATE brings ‘Glideshow’, a new feature that facilitates image dissolves with text gliding over the top. Kinda nice. Haven’t used it yet but here is something of a recent offering. Life at art school and beyond.
I’ve been experimenting with a number of drawing apps for the ipad. Among them have been Live Shetch HD, Harmony Procedural drawing tool (online), SketchBook Pro, Brushes and Sketch Club. Despite the odd sounding name, Sketch Club has been getting good feedback. You can read more about it and see examples of what it can do on the page under iPad apps.
