I research, paint and generally obsess about fire.

These paintings are a body of works from over the last few years, alongside a selection of very recent works responding to the tragically destructive fire season and the ash and smoke of 2019-2020’s Black Summer. 

In the world’s most fire-prone continent, with the world’s most ancient living fire histories, my artwork is driven by our evolving relationship to fire.
