Get to know me

 

Hi, I’m Benn.

 

I’m a West Australian artist who grew up in Geraldton. Although I live in Perth now, I have a deep connection the Australian Land and the spirit and energy that reside there. I’m a great believer in tuning in to that energy which brings great revelation, healing and connectedness to the human soul.

 

I became a soldier in the army at the age of seventeen, I now feel it was more about being with the land than anything else, however it taught me one thing, attention to detail which I hope comes through in my work. My last career as an electronic Engineer is reflected in the technical aspects of my work, it has also created a sense of discovery into how different techniques and products can work together.

 

My journey to mixed-media.

 

I always knew deep down that being creative was in my blood in essence it is part of who I am. I was creating model scenery for my son, making trees and buildings. That led to a period of using wire as a medium experimenting with flattening it out into two dimensions. Using paper and other materials happened accidentally. My partner had a lot of unused scrapbook paper in the spare room, and I saw this as an opportunity for exploration. I started using these materials in unconventional ways. Through months of trial and error, I uncovered new ways to create beautiful pieces that I felt captured  and conveyed energy, emotion, and love. Although there were times I felt frustrated, or felt like giving up, the energy always drew me back in. So, I pursued it, and here we are.
