My main influences are contemporary Australian artists with an interest in landscape like Mandy Martin, Julie Harris,Judy Watson, Elizabeth Cummings and Angus Nivison, plus the iconic John Olsen and Fred Williams. These artists range from those working in a more realistic style, to those who favour abstraction. I am also influenced by artists like Gerhard Richter, who works across abstraction and figuration and the powerful use of colour in the work of Mark Rothko and Anne Judell. My inspiration in starting a work can be as varied as a landscape I have experienced, a blurred photograph or concept.
