is a studio artist, independent writer and children’s author.

Matt lives, works and travels with his 8-year-old son, making portrait, landscape and travelogue studies across a range of media. He has completed tenures as artist-in-residence in Australia at Casula Powerhouse, Nishi Gallery and New Acton Precinct; and in Taipei at Bamboo Curtain Studio and Guandu International Art Festival.
