About

I have a love of abstract expressionism. The landscape keys my art in my exploration of line mass and tone. I have been a finalist in the Dobell Prize for drawing and the Wynne Prize for landscape. I love works on paper and oils on canvas. I have been a judge at a local Arts festival and received an award for house renovation from The Royal Institute of Architects. My art is powerful‚ edgy and calligraphic.
