Biography:

Liam's free flowing lines, shapes and expressive colour captures his subject; the essence of place or individual experience.  He explores the relationship and interconnectedness we as humans have with our environment and since moving from Queensland to the Peninsula, his work captures the beautifully harsh surroundings of the Victorian coastline.  Liam’s current body of work is focussed on creating contemporary landscapes, seascapes, still life and portraiture capturing a moment in time. 

His illustrative work is bold and colourful, often with a dash of humour.  Liam's illustrations have been used in posters, T-Shirts, wrapping paper, children's books, websites, digital newsletters and beer bottles.  He works in both traditional illustration materials and digital tools to suit the needs of his clients.
