The city of Melbourne has changed so much since I left almost 30 years ago. When I went back I tried to take photos of the areas I remember as a kid. I try to capture that feeling I had as a kid, a sense of wonder of bygone days. I feel nostalgic for a time I never experienced, but the photos are evidence of some a golden age - when life was simpler and community life was vibrant.
Hello and welcome to my blog, I work as a graphic designer, illustrator, photographer and artist.
I am originally from Melbourne, Australia, but left to go travelling over twenty years ago and never managed to get back there. In the 1980s I did a toolmaking apprenticeship in Melbourne, then in 1985, I came to Europe, where I saw for the first time the works by Miró and Klee and I started to draw and paint.
I worked as an artist full time from 1992 to 2000 and I have had over twenty solo exhibitions in UK, Spain and Australia, and since the 1980s I have been closely involved with environmental and human rights campaigns, using my art to support the work of many NGOs and community groups.
In 2003, I graduated in Graphic Design at The University of Kingston in London and since then I have been working as a designer, illustrator and photographer. I recently moved to Barcelona, where I continue to freelance for clients in Spain, Australia, US and UK.
