About

Typical \'50\'s baby-boomer‚ I followed \"sensible\" parental advice to teach English. \"Artists don\'t run in our family‚\" they said. So it wasn\'t till my kids were teens that I indulged my designer\'s passion at Melbourne Art School and M.I.T. where I loved perspective drawing‚ simple graphics and the magic of manipulating abstract - or kiddie fun concepts‚ into repeat patterns.
Astrology also influences my acrylic/ink adventures in symbolically portraying the zodiac.

Influences

A fascination for visual illusion created through variations on rules of perspective drawing; positive and negative subliminal forms created out of repeat pattern designs; clean lines and vibrant colour created through manipulating simple graphic form and abstract symbols - especially related to children\'s art and representations of astrology concepts.
