About

I was born in the UK‚ in 1939 and emigrated to Australia in 1963.
I moved to Broken Hill in the early 70's where I met several of the local artists including Pro Hart‚ John Pickup‚ and Eric Minchin‚ who encouraged and helped me in the art of oil painting‚ and also to appreciate local landscapes. Since then I painted sporadically until I retired 10years ago‚ when I began to paint seriously.
I am at present studying for a degree in Fine Art and I find that the direction of my work has changed.

Influences

Landscapes. Other artists. Through my painting I now see the Australian landscapes in a new light - its splendour and majesty which in turn give me inspiration to paint. A year ago I started a BA degree in Fine Art and Visual Culture at Curtin University - and in my work there I have been gaining insights into a new world of painting. Having gone back to basics‚ I am now delving
into new styles and methods - which is all very exciting.
