Circle Rocks Around, This image is created as a vertical panoramic, but it can also be displayed horizontally. I created this image while photographing one morning at a place called pebbly beach. this beach is a unique beach between cairns and Port Douglas.  A very appropriate name as it is completly covered in beautiful smooth quartz stones, which have been rounded off from the continuous tumbling motion of the waves and ocean. I love the fact that in time water can do this to something so hard. I spent the morning collecting stones which had a line of contrasting quartz veins running through them. These were joined together and the result is an image which acknowledges the human nature connection. By placing them in a line they go straight around in a continous circle just like the motion of the waves which never stop washing up onto the shore. A continuous circle of motion representing the moon which moves the ocean with its tidal influence. Everything circles around.

  • The artworks featured on this website are printed using large format Epson Printers and genuine Epson K3 pigment inks. I do all of the printing of the canvas and fine art paper prints in my studio space here in Kuranda. I have the acrylic wallmounts printed and prepared in Port Douglas by Imagebank. Only the highest quality papers and inks are used to guarantee museum quality and longevity. Every limited edition print is signed and numbered with an embossed seal. They all come with a registered certificate of Authenticity.


    Giclee (zhee-klay) prints are created using professional large-format ink-jet printers and pigment inks. This printing process provides accurate color & the quality of these prints rival traditional silver-halide & gelatin printing techniques. Giclee prints are incredibly detailed and highly sought after in the contemporary fine art market. Many are found in museums, galleries and public collections around the world. They are beneficial to artists who do not want to mass produce their work & release very high quality collectable editions when required.

    In the past I nearly always used Hahnemuhle photo papers, however for the last few years I have been using the Moab collection with superb results. Moab entrada rag bright 290gsm art paper is a great paper for photographic reproduction. Entrada’s triple coating gives images a dimensional quality that nothing else matches. Entrada Rag Bright is made of 100% cotton and exhibits a bright surface. This naturally acid- and lignin-free paper offers an expanded color gamut and is compatible with pigment inks, which is why I use it.

    CANVAS (archival)
    Heavy duty acid free premium canvas is always used to guarantee quality and longevity.The Canvas prints are available as rolled prints with a gallery wrap on the edges or stretched over an internal frame, ready to hang. The archival canvas prints are also double coated with a high quality archival clear varnish finish. This extra layer of protection is designed to ensure the artwork stays looking good on your wall.
