My work in 2003 took me to Australia where I traveled around the country. (click here to see map).

During my 9 months stay I had the opportunity to meet many Australians. I was very inspired by my time with the Aboriginal people there and to see the wonderfully varied scenery from the rainforests of Cape Tribulation in Queensland to the red deserts of Southern Australia (click here for my travel diary).



I attempted to record a feeling of these experiences with photos (click here for photos). I also shot video of all the things I thought were distinct about Australia. (click here for videos). 

It was a wonderful experience to create my portraits of the diverse and colourful population of Australia, I invite you to visit the gallery of my paintings to see more (click here).
