About

Thanks very much for viewing my profile.
I'm a Perth-based artist who's been painting in (mainly) oils for eighteen years, from the early hesitant days of teaching myself, to the present, where I can now fail with confidence!
I hope to enliven as many living rooms as possible with my art, and I'm grateful every day for the chance to do this. The sea seems to be a recurring theme for me, but it's nice to tackle a variety of subjects and stay fresh. I've branched out into pastels recently too.
I love to apply extra-oily paint with a knife, or any tool which comes to hand. For some reason I've developed an aversion to brushes, but I'm sure I'll get back to them one day...
A quality finish and attention to detail are high priorities for me, and I won't sell anything I wouldn't have on my own wall.
Thanks again for viewing,
Regards,
Colin.
