About

I was born in the U.K. and moved to Australia in 1999. Art is a second career for me, and because of this I have built my experience and practice rapidly by working with, and learning from, other artists who inspire me. My work is diverse, encompassing landscape, portraiture and figurative work .

I have studios in Sydney and at Lake Conjola on the South Coast of NSW and my available artworks are distributed between these two loca tions, so there might be a delay in delivery of your artwork if it’s at the other studio. You can contact me at [email protected] to enquire about delivery times.

I have exhibited in a number of group exhibitions and support charitable and community organisations. My work is currently held in private collections in Australia (including the university of Sydney), Germany, Singapore, Switzerland, China, the UK and the US.

The two major highlights of my art career so far have been having a piece selected for the prestigious Portia Geach national portrait award, exhibited at the SH Ervin Gallery in Sydney in 2016 and receiving a significant portrait commission from the University of Sydney.
