Grew up in Perth after emigrating to Australia at aged 9. Studied classical music, the violin, and worked as an opera and ballet orchestral violinist as a young person in the mind 1970s onwards, whilst at university studying music, anthropology, psychology, then moving onto playing in symphony orchestras in Australia. Took time off to go to art school in Perth in the late 1970s....for a thinking and artistically inspiring time. It was a wonderful year of art, colours, paintings and drawings and so on. Inspired me for life....with joy, love and wonder. Returned to painting time and again over the years, the latest bout was taking a year's break to paint in 2015. Am resuming painting in 2017 onwards.....and lately seriously loving the paintings and artworks of Sara Carena, Kerry T., Sun Park and Paddy Colahan, whose works can be found in Bluethumb website.
