Born in London. Raised in Australia. Living in New York City.

If there is one unifying element to my work thus far it would have to be ‘the gaze’, in all its forms – About 20 years ago I read some graffiti on a wall that simply said “return of the gaze” I’ve been struck by the power of this statement and have been trying to get to the sublime core of it’s meaning ever since.
