Working as an artist for over 25 years, Christian uses art to interpret and connect with his community.

Current affairs, infrastructure, and people that affect his everyday life are his favourite subject matter. Christian’s art takes on many forms from drawings of iconic buildings, stop animation films about politicians and 3D sculptures of people, vehicles and watercraft. Christian takes great pleasure in documenting his town and the places he visits. We all feel the need for connection to our community and this is Christian's. With quiet contemplation we can see through Christian’s work, a true reflection of our wonderful history of architecture and industry.

Christian is a prolific self - taught artist who has exhibited in galleries such as the Canberra National Gallery, The Art Gallery of Ballarat and Geelong Gallery. He has works in museum, gallery and private collections within Australia. Currently Christian attends the ArtGusto studio in the Geelong 3 days a week.
