About

Alive and well on the sunny coast of Queensland. I juggle between Australia's 'hub of art, culture, noise and traffic' i.e. Melbourne, my place of origin (40 years pre Queensland) and my adopted place of peace and sanctuary i.e. Home, SE Qld. Influenced by both; Melbourne's multicultural metropolis and the freedom I feel intuitively in this warm, relaxed, of easy access to natural environments, regional part of Queensland. From sun baking as a teenager on the bay's beaches of Port Phillip Bay, to strolling the sands and embracing the surf of the Pacific Ocean on the Sunshine Coast, I am grateful for my simplistic lifestyle.
My creativity comes in floods and droughts, causing total abandonment of the canvas until motivation literally explodes vigorously with fresh ideas to produce, produce, produce. It's an Artist's peril - unavoidable time and again.
