“1/200th of a Second in Time”

“Cheeky Lorikeet”
There are Grevillea shrubs in our Sydney backyard and our neighbour’s. Rainbow Lorikeets feed here constantly, literally 2 meters from our back door.  This provides an excellent opportunity to photograph and study these chatty, cheeky and beautifully-coloured birds.

“Sentient Gorilla”
This drawing was inspired by a photograph I took of a pensive Silverback Gorilla (Taronga Zoo). At that time it was being challenged by a younger male. The portrait was meticulously created over many hours. I always find that such portraits seem to come to life when the character’s eyes are real enough to look back into your own.
