Art level career
Born in Western Sydney, I have always loved to draw & create since early childhood. I’ve moved through various styles and have now my style has evolved into a more kid friendly look which I am currently using to create a range of adult alcohol books "Barry Beer" which are proving wildly popular in Australia. The way I create art is usually by using pencils to get the image on paper, then I will use various markers to ink it & then finally scan it into my computer & use Photoshop & Paintshop Pro to embellish the designs with colour, texture & text. I create because I love it - it calms me & brings me joy, especially when someone enjoys my art & my style seems to elicit smiles in the young & old alike. The art I create is usually commission based having done murals for a martial arts dojo & the charity “Queen of Hearts” based in Penrith, NSW.
