So after sometime trying to combine my client based design and multimedia work with my personal visual art on this site I realised it was getting a bit difficult for people to know what it is I am doing as both styles are pretty different. So this current website is going to be for my design work and commercial projects to help me get freelance work while this BRAND NEW WEBSITE will be for my own personal visual art. Hope you enjoy the new site.

Here are the details I have, for more information or to make a booking please contact the gallery on 4228 7500. All materials will be provided. Continue reading
Outpost Project 2013 has unfortunately been cancelled!

I have been meaning to finish off the print run for ‘The House’ series for a while now but with no room for screen printing last year and then moving my studio 4 times during the past 12 months I never got a around to getting it done.

The Australian Stencil Art Prize was on last week and for the 4th year in a row my work made the finals. This year the exhibition was at Chrissie Cotter Gallery in Sydney and the show is open till Dec 2, 2012.

I was in the Freddie (The Freddie ‘Mercury’) yesterday. Yep that newspaper that I once worked for…. anyway they done a story on me about being in the Australian Stencil Art Prize. The online photo is slightly creepy, the printed pic was a lot better so grab a hard copy if you can. There was a large stack at the servo in Berry last night. Continue reading
Owners of iconic coffee & retail shop ‘Lee & Me’ recently expanded their horizons and opened a brand new whiskey bar in Wollongong called ‘His Boy Elroy‘. I was asked to stencil the long slanted wall that goes up the stairwell to the second level and after tossing some ideas around I came up with the concept of a whiskey train. Continue reading
