About

Hello. I have been painting since the 1990s. I paint and exhibit with the Blackheath Art Society. My work is mostly figurative‚ colourful and naive. I work in acrylics for the most part but do also enjoy linocuts.
My inspirations are the Fauves and the expressionists. My heros are Franz Marc‚ Matisse and the Australian women Dorrit Black‚ Thea Proctor‚ Grace Cossington-Smith and Margaret Preston.

Education

Formal art training is minimal. Some classes with a local artist and some workshops. Lots of visiting exhibitions and reading and watching films about art.

Exhibitions

Have been part of six exhibitions with a local group known as the CoCos (formerly the Contemporary Colourists). Was a feature artist at Gallery Blackheath early in 2013.

Influences

I have listed my inspirations in my biography but would like to add my mother who painted and who particularly introduced me to Japanese art.
