The People of Melanesia Project


I have recently begun working on a new series of paintings, celebrating the cultural, diversity and life of the indigenous people of Melanesia.

The rapid demise of indigenous cultures is of great concern. Every two weeks a unique language disappears and with it, cultural traditions and knowledge. This loss is a global tragedy.
