About

Welcome to my exhibition of recent works and a collection of past bouts. I generally paint in oils; a medium that I find creates the ideas as they flow onto the canvas. I have been painting on and off for most of my life. Over the years, I have been influenced by the abstracts and expressionists that have existed both here and overseas. I approach my work with an initial idea, lay out the colours I want to include and the battle begins. I’m a quick painter usually, three rounds suits me best. These basic elements provide a flexibility that can allow the movement of paint to mimic the landscape as I see it.
I receive most of my influences from the Australian art scene, the landscape and my treks throughout the Kimberley. Being able to walk and camp in this wild environment for weeks at a time enables me to become immersed in an ancient land. Not only are the land forms impressive, witnessing Indigenous cave art that has lay dormant for many thousands of years promotes a connection to the many secrets that Australia has to offer.
My work features in many private collections throughout Australia and New York. I have sold mainly through reputation and word of mouth, I have found this allows me to sell at a more reasonable price. I have been involved in many group exhibitions since the early 1980's, mainly in Sydney and throughout the Mid and North Coast of NSW.

I am influenced by many artists some from the past such as the impressionists, cubists, abstract expressionists, pop art and more recently the Australian artists such as the Heidelberg school (Roberts, Condor, Streeton), Cossington- Smith. Boyd, Whiteley right through to the many new painters still actively exhibiting. Did I leave anyone out you may ask?
