Couple of events.....

A fair serving of illustration work has restricted me from Facebook for a while.

The weekend won't be getting any quieter with two festivals over the next couple of days.

Firstly the Spring Gala at Jalbrook, Balingup. This event is the chance to meet with gardening guru, Neville Passmore, who'll be giving a talk and book signing. For more info please go here.

The following day will see me at the Children's Fiesta in Fremantle as part of their music festival. More info here.

Definitely worth a day out for either of these events. So see you there!!! :)

Zig Zag Festival

Off to the Zig Zag Festival in Kalamunda tomorrow (see my events page).

If you haven't highlighted this festival in your calender then definitely make amends. Plenty of arts, crafts, live music, food plus activities for kids.

I'll be drawing free portraits there, so make sure you seek my stall out. See you there!

'Are you feeling stressed? Then take time out to be swallowed in by a meditative seascape!!'

Painted while on a working holiday. Nothing better than chilling out at sunset by the beach (or in this case, unfortunately an estuary).

Original for sale, please message me directly for further details :)

The Floating Boy

The painting of the floating boy is complete.

The intensity of the midnight sky is the crowing achievement in this work.

I applied Prussian Blue directly from the tube to create depth with thin layers of coloured ink to increase the intensity.

The original is available for purchase, please contact me directly at for further details :)

Zig Zag Arts Festival 2013

The Zig Zag Festival is upon us again.

Taking place in Kalamunda, Perth, this enjoyable event promises craft stalls, live music, kids activities and good food.

As this year's theme is 'Middle Earth' I'll be there in my hobbit garb selling my greeting cards and providing free portraits to customers.

So make the effort to join in. Come and get your beautiful facial features abused on paper by me and my pencil :)

Sunday, October 27th, 11 - 7pm. More information here.


It's been a while since I've posted on here.

I've been busily undertaking an intense few weeks of painting and, happy to say, completing two books well within the contract's deadline.

I'm really content with the final artwork. Looking forward to showing some of the illustrations nearer the release date of the books (2014).

As I posted the artwork off yesterday I celebrated its departure by painting a picture just for the hell of it.

What's the story behind it, dunno, maybe the little guy on the watering is lazily levitating the boy after the latter gave him cheek.

This is the original sketch....

'Flight' is now complete.

With slabs of gouche heavily covering several original atmospheric concepts I finally settled on a subtle evening glow.

Due to several technical issues I'm experiencing with my website, Creations in a Teapot, this image is available as a greeting card or archival print (29.7 x 21cm) directly from me. Contact me directly  at to have orders processed manually.

The original is also available for purchase. If interested please contact me directly for more details :)
