About

I am currently retired and commenced creating paintings /drawings and different forms of art in June 2015. I enjoy creating pictures of the world around me. I find it very satisfying and am intrigued by the use of different methods to achieve this.
I have entered several exhibitions to date and contests in the last twelve months and have been accepted for many exhibits locally. I gained first prize with a local arts group for a landscape/ figures.I have also gained 1st place with a figurine posted on an on line art tutoring site. I recently (Feb 2017) gained first prize in oils and Best in Show at the Tea Tree Gully Art Show for my painting "Demented".
I seem to thrive in oils and pastels and with portraits and animals.
I grew up in South Wales before emigrating South Australia in 1989.
I am influenced by many realism artists whom are based world wide.
I am not an expert photographer but am able to access fantastic photographs from friend, family and the internet ans know immediately what I would like to paint as it jumps out at me.
