About

After a career working as a teacher, demolisher and builder the last 2 decades have seen me rediscover art. After an initial obsession with pastels I turned more to drawing and have been a regular court room artist for local TV stations. I still love drawing people and am often found in the local cafe sketching . I've had a number of gigs doing just this at schools, weddings , markets and other functions. Painting also excites me - landcscapes, streetscapes and still life. Recently I've been painting on hoop pine boards that I've reclaimed from a demolished house. I'm really enjoying capturing the architecture and landscape of the beautiful Scenic Rim where I currently live. I see art as a train - you get on and off at the stops you want to explore.
