About

I was born‚ bred‚ schooled and worked in and from Sydney. I spent my working life of almost 30 years‚ in the oil industry. I studied management for 6 years‚ which included most of the business topics and after retirement I qualified as a commercial artist and four certificates in cartooning.
At high school, I loved technical drawing and was tagged as a potential architect. That didn't happen, but I've always had an inkling for artwork and have tinkered around in those circles for many years. I have exhibited my work in galleries in Sydney, NSW, been included in competitions, done some commissions and in the 1990's I was involved with several newspapers and a few magazines doing the regular cartoons.
I currently do art mainly as a hobby, but still involved with a local gallery where I have been showing my work. Over the past 25 years I have been involved in the hobby of lapidary, where I've tried to work exclusively with opals, cutting, polishing and setting. These finished items are also in the same gallery and I have small successes as time goes by.
