My shopfront studio in Merthyr Rd, New Farm.. I loved this place!
After a while in the Merthyr Rd studio, my good friend Adam Head and I decided to take over the whole building and opened the New Farm Art Stockroom! Here we are doing what we do.. Click here for images of it and to see it's website! For the short time that it existed, it was fantastic!

A poster for the solo show, 'Icarus and Other Angels' in 1991. I was making sculptural paintings at the time and living in my studio in the old Target Building in Fortitude Valley.
Working in the 2001 Bardon studio. It was a great place, until it was pulled down..
The Bardon studio, I took to the wall with a circular saw and installed some windows for northern light! A vast improvement, I worked in this excellent studio for a couple of years around the beginning of the century
Various manifestations of studio computers which I built.. One in St Kilda and one in Bardon set in a wheel barrow so I could move it around the studio, my first portable computer!
