I paint Kemetic (Ancient Egyptian) Gods and Their manifestation in the modern world. The traditional idea of hanging paintings in galleries is dated. I make films related to and about my art as my preferred way to show the world what I do.
I describe my paintings as “Nouveau Kemetic”, “Neo Kemetic”, and “Neo Pharaonic”. All of these terms speak to the inherent Ancient Egyptian themes that my paintings centre upon and the new take on those themes also.
I have an interest and background in bodybuilding, and am an amateur Egyptologist.
The sacred expressing Itself through art is of great interest to me: I casually study comparative religions through education resources like Audible, podcasts, and traditional learning. I have a deep interest in the elements of the soul that I refer to as soul anatomy, most especially as expressed by the Ancient Egyptians.
I staged an exhibition of 25 of my paintings called Neo Pharaonic in Melbourne in February 2018. A short documentary was made and was officially selected at one US Short Film Festival and gained an award in another. It is featured on this site. It's the first and last time I showed my work in a traditional gallery setting - an idea I think that has had its day.
My latest works are a documentary about the Ancient Egyptian praying mantis god, Abyt; a music video, Hymn To The Soul Serpent (Hymn To Nehebukau), and coming in early 2021, another experimental short documentary about one of my definitive paintings - Winged Set: Anatomy Of A Painting.

* the acting / painting crossover that my films represent began early in my career when I was accepted as a student at both an acting academy and an art school in Adelaide, South Australia (I could of course only choose one!)
* my first principal acting role was as the Bad Angel in Marlowe's Dr. Faustus - the dark found me before I found it, even then
*I have competed as a bodybuilder and so the wearing skimpy briefs thing started then; I also modeled for underwear and swimwear catalogues and fetish wear
* my obsession with Ancient Egypt is not a phase: it started early in my life and continues as I study how to read hieroglyphs under an Egyptologist and continue my devotions to the Netjeru - the mighty gods of Ancient Egypt
