A visual poem/asemic writing work hot off the studio table.This is part of a series i am working on called Disruption,some of which will be sent to an exhibition Networked Disruption curated by Vittore Baroni. the style of visual poetry [where text intersects with visual art] i favour, is just a shade off abstract art where the letters become just another mark in the range of available shapes.The colours are my new Tasmanian palette taken from burnt logs,grey skies and lime green new growth foliage. A sense of place comes into all the work.

media used include atelier interactive acrylic paint,alphabet stickers from the $2 shop,part of a decorated envelope sent by an artist friend, on Draw and wash textured paper by Artist Spectrum.

English/Aussie Visual Artist based in the historic town of York, in the Wheatbelt of Western Australia. I've been described as a "painter with a fluid approach". So although painting and drawing are my first language so to speak, i enjoy creating film photograph,textiles,visual poetry and even the occasional sound or performance project. Really i feel the medium needs be the best to express the idea. Much of my work is collaborative in the form of assembling books where each artist contributes an art work/page which is then bound. Also mail art which is often exhibited as an egalitarian installation. I also do some design work for sale via Red Bubble, Saatchi Art sites and local galleries.
