Happy new year! Its great to be back and kicking off the year with a new mural and video! This one was for The Royale Domain coffee shop in St Kilda, Melbourne. As always I had a lot of fun with this one, in the video I discuss doing commercial murals and how important they are. Enjoy!
I just wrapped up doing a artist in residency program at Beaconhills College. It really was a awesome opportunity and I cannot thank everyone involved enough! I have embedded a youtube video below with the first painting I completed across the two weeks and it goes into depth exactly what I was doing. Enjoy!
Artist block… where to start. It’s kind of a weird thing, it’s frustration, anger, anxiousness. It’s kind of like all you want to do is create and put something on the page, but you feel like whatever you do is going to be irrelevant, you don’t have the skills to do so, you lack thought and direction.
You get stuck in a funk, a place that breeds monotony and stale thought, it’s kind of like limbo. For me the way out of this is to just throw something at the page and see what happens, with no pre judgment or expectations. In this case it’s a self portrait of me expressing what it feels like. It was about doing something different to what I normally paint, different style, different colours and now I’m ready for the next one.

Hey guys, I hope life is treating you all well. I’v been pretty busy lately. I finished up these two pieces on these really unique glass pieces in oil! Timelapse video down below, what do you all think?
Another video in the series! Would mean a lot if you went and checked it out! 🙂
