About

I was introduced into Oil medium by Hawkesbury Artist and Teacher Deidre Morrison in Richmond, NSW many years ago. Initially, I painted with brushes for several years, then I replaced them with knives for a change, and I liked the knives. So I kept painting Australian and other land/seascapes all these years. That is how I managed to establish my own way of painting with knives, so I am a self-taught palette knife painter by now. My works have been sold locally and overseas
All my current works are painted 100% with knives and I am continuously looking for better and more effective ways to further the use of various shapes & sizes of palette and painting knives in my painting projects. I usually use thin paint layers for sky, background and some areas of the middle ground. remaining parts of the middle ground and foreground are painted with thick layers. In that way I manage to control entire painting process to achieve the results I am after

Magnificent Hawkesbury region in NSW has inspired me to become an artist and I am to continue with my art journey in to the future

Education

As previously mentioned I learnt to paint in Oil medium from Hawkesbury Artist/Teacher Deidre Morrison in Richmond, NSW many years ago. Later I myself learnt to paint with knives and I really liked it. Since then I am a self-taught palette knife painter. I have spent lots of hours studying magnificent works of Great Australian and American painters.
