A Portrait of Home


In this series ‘A Portrait of Home’ I aim to capture the essence of a place deeply connected to my personal history and collective memory.


Growing up on the southern Gold Coast, Australia, the beach has always been more than just a stretch of sand and water—it's been a sanctuary of barefoot freedom, a source of respite and comfort, and a constant reminder of the beauty and power of nature. The pristine white sand that ‘squeaks’ as you walk, clear water and the rhythmic motion of the waves conjure up memories of carefree days spent roaming around the foreshore and playing in the surf.

But beyond the visual beauty of the ocean, there's a deeper connection that draws us to the water - for many of us, our lives and daily rituals are intertwined with the ebb and flow of the tides, shaping our sense of identity and belonging.

As an artist, my goal is to create artworks that not only capture the beauty of the southern Gold Coast but also evoke the emotions and connections that make this place so special. Through my drawings and paintings, I hope to carry you back to your own cherished memories, inviting you to reconnect with people and places that hold significance in your life.


And to celebrate the timeless bond between humanity and the natural world, reminding us of the importance of preserving and cherishing our home.


Some of my first memories of the Gold Coast were of Currumbin Beach - exploring the rock pools and the creatures within, pretending to scale the 'mountain' of Elephant Rock and playing on the beach.
