After a career in Graphic Design, I moved to painting full-time, predominantly in oils. Self-taught, early on I benefitted from having access to a family-owned gallery in Port Douglas. I sent my work there and gained immense confidence from selling the majority of my work. Nowadays, I sell through commissioned work, exhibitions and the internet. I still consider my work to be in an experimental phase and therefore it is quite varied. As of last year, I have been entering the major art prizes and reached the semi-final of the Doug Moran Portrait Prize in 2015. That painting is my only work for sale at present.
