About

Born in Melbourne in 1963 and I have over 40 years of experience as an artist and creative designer, personally and in a professional career in commercial art. Completed a one year Tertiary Orientation Program in Art and Design at Chisholm Institute of Technology in 1980 and a following three year Graduate Diploma in Graphic Design. All throughout my studies I never stopped painting, usually in oils.After completing uni, I started working as a Finished Artist for a printing firm in Prahran, which was a great introduction to all my jobs to follow. Towards the end of the 80 s, I took a break and travelled to Europe and London where I lived for a year and worked briefly as an artist for Time Out magazine. In 1990, I was lucky enough to land a position at Clemenger Melbourne for the retail department in the print production studio. A few years later, the agency merged retail into the mainstream creative department which was much more of a challenge in terms of design, typography and photo retouching. During my time at Clemenger, I married and had two boys. In the year 2000, we decided to make a change and move to Athens as a family. It was there I worked at BBDO Athens as a Senior Art Director. During my years there, I managed to collect numerous industry awards and competition prizes. The year 2015 saw a very serious downturn in the European economy, in particular, Greece and in June of that year I was made redundant from BBDO, along with many others. So, during this time of uncertainty, I began painting on a full-time basis in my home studio in Athens. I was able to create enough work to hold two solo art exhibitions, one in Athens and another on the island of Aegina, where I sold a numerous works. I also exhibited work at UBU gallery in Geelong in early 2017 having returned to Melbourne and later in 2018, a successful solo exhibition. Now I continue to paint and try to develop a consistent style while dealing with what life throws my way.
