About

I began painting professionally in 1980 after being commissioned to paint five race horses for the limited edition publication titled: Notable Australian Thoroughbreds. Soon after I sold a painting of a famous Australian racehorse Dulcify to Baron Peter Von Kapp Herr, who was the president of the Baden Baden Racing Club in Germany. I was then commissioned by an Australian publisher to paint the racehorse Octagonal for a limited edition print. More recently I was asked to paint the Melborne Cup winner, Might and Power, which was also made into a limited edition print.In the early eighties I was asked to exhibit several paintings of Phar Lap for a major exhibition to coincide with the release of the movie Phar Lap. I shared the exhibition with Sir Patrick Kilvington at the George Styles Gallery in Sydney.About twenty years ago I began painting and drawing figure work, specialising in the female nude.My preferred mediums are oils or pastels.My portrait commissions include: Famous Australian Jockey, Malcolm Johnston, Radio personality John Laws, commissioned by radio station 2UW, Rugby League captain, Steve Mortimer, commissioned by the Canterbury Council. I have also painted several famous racing journalists: Keith Robbins, Bert Lillye, Bill Whittaker and Tom Brassel. All were commissioned by either News Limited or John Fairfax.My paintings are represented in Australia, England, Germany, Japan and other countries.I have been teaching art for the past twenty five years at private premises in Gymea.I am listed in the Max Germaine publication, Artists and Galleries of Australia.I am an exhibiting member of The Royal Art Society.
