Sunshine Coast Art Commission

It was an honour to be commissioned by the Sunshine Coast Council to supply artwork for the recent Beerwah Aquatics Centre refurbishment.

Mon Repos Turtles

Turtle hatchlings emerge from their nests after the sun goes down and instinctively make their way towards the light over the sea. They calibrate their inbuilt GPS system to orientate themselves with the earth’s magnetic field so that the survivors can find their way back to the same beach [...]

Salt Magazine Winter Edition

Manta Magic

Manta rays are the largest rays in the world, with the oceanic species growing up to a massive 9m from one wing tip to the other! Mantas are amazing creatures to dive with and I was completely mesmerised by the beautiful black female that was leading two males around a [...]
