About

I enjoy all subject matter, however, the subject itself can determine the medium I choose to work with, it may require the fluidity and beauty of diluted acrylic or the direct impact of thick acrylic/oil paints to convey my personal vision. My approach may be fast and spontaneous or could take many hours, days to complete my goal. I enjoy the challenge of impressionistic work as well as an intuitive, contemporary approach to a subject which can allow true creativity to shine.
Above all I am seeking a sense of balance, harmony and inner artistic enjoyment
I have exhibited at numerous art shows and have received many awards.
I tutor at my studio in Hoppers Crossing.
Art is part of my life and every moment is not lost but spent painting, teaching and what to create next.

Education

I started painting in 1992 and attended several art lessons and workshops with many teachers.
Since 2013 I have been attending workshops with the renowned artist: David Chen who taught me about techniques, colour mixing, and much more.
