About

I hold an Advanced Diploma in Graphic Design and Multimedia .. and worked within the industry for the last 16 years, majority was as a freelance & web designer, so it helps me understand what people are looking for when they have a request for a painting. Recently, I decided to concentrate solely on developing my own artwork further and so my initial aim was to learn how to adopt Watercolour into my Pen & Ink studies, which has now developed into a love for the medium by itself .

Living in many different country & coastal towns ranging from Far Nth Qld, Gold Coast, back home to NSW. . with my career ranging from General Manager & CEO..to deckhand & crew on racing yachts !..All of which accompanies a love of travel, both here & overseas.. opens up to a variety of subjects & experiences for my painting..

Member of Central Coast Watercolour Society, Society of Artists Newcastle, the Hunter Arts Network, and The Newcastle Art Society, I regularly exhibit as well as hold a stall at Hunter Art Markets which display my current work in paintings and cards. I also enjoy entering a number of Art prizes . so I hope you enjoy what I present for you here :)
