Every artwork I create

is made from some of the most environmentally friendly materials that I have been able to source without compromising the integrity and longevity of the final artwork.

Materials used

I use no toxic solvents, heavy metals or bleach. All paints, mediums, varnishes and primers are non-toxic. All wood used in brushes and canvas stretchers are FSC certified, everything else is recycled, a byproduct or cruelty free.

  • Hydrocryl Acrylic Paints, mediums and varnishes
  • Water mixable oil paints
  • Belgian linen
  • FSC Stretcher bars from Chapman & Bailey and Sydney Canvas Company
  • “The Masters”® Brush Cleaner and Preserver
  • Non-toxic Australian made gesso
  • Non-toxic Australian made modelling paste

Causes I Support

As an artist, I’m in the privileged position that enables me to help spread awareness of conservation issues. By donating artwork to help fundraise, donating money and talking about environmental issues in both my own channels and media opportunities, I help educate others about issues facing our marine habitats, beaches, oceans and surf breaks.

  • Sea Shepherd Conservation Society
  • Surfrider Foundation
  • Wyland Foundation
  • Oceana
  • Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors
