Not limited to the canvas, Daren has hand painted a cricket bat for Prince William, high heels for Princess Kate, a golf bag for Tiger Woods and Football boots for David Beckham.

A dedicated educator, Daren has worked with Indigenous youth for 23 years. His passions are sharing his knowledge and skills in art, fostering a love and respect for Aboriginal culture and giving back to the community.
