Hello, thanks for visiting my site. I am Matt, a full-time artist living in Queensland, Australia, specialising in drawing conceptual visual imagery using graphite pencils on paper, acrylics on canvas and inks & gouache on Japanese “washi” paper.
I have been working full-time as an artist since about 2014 but painting in earnest since 2000. I have qualifications in law and science and used to work as an international lawyer.
I am self-taught as an artist (as you can probably tell from my artwork!). That teaching has come from the many galleries I’ve visited over the years. I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to visit some of the great galleries of the world many times: eg Paris, London, New York, Berlin, Tokyo, Shanghai.
Probably most important to my art education is that I grew up in Canberra, Australia where I could visit the National Gallery of Australia any time I liked and then worked in Sydney where my office was about 5 minutes walk from the NSW Art Gallery.
