I have been involved with the creative arts all my life and completed a Degree in Fine Art at the University of South Australia. My inspiration comes from nature which is an integral part of my life.
My subject matter is primarily landscapes and still life and I use them as inspiration to explore the different colours, shapes and forms that exist in both. My style is constantly evolving and like to work with different techniques and mediums.
Painting and drawing for me is one way I can live fully in the present and hopefully contribute in some way to bringing visual enjoyment and beauty to others.
I work in acrylic, gouache, watercolour pencils, ink, pencil and charcoal.
I lived in Armidale NSW for over 20 years where I continued to paint and also took up ceramics. I completed a Certificate in Ceramics at TAFE in Armidale.
These days I live in Canberra, the capitol of Australia.
