About

I am an X Stockman Come Artist, I started painting from getting sick from Agent Orange it affected my nerves and heart so I took up painting again from when I was younger. I am self-taught I do it for the love of art, My work has been published in Australian art magazine may 2018. I have sold many works all over the world, I won my first art competition at school as that is all I did was paint and draw it was my only interest apart from history. I was invited to study art at Adelaide art college but was not able to because of my illness. I have won many awards and had many shows and sold all works at one show.I have my own studio that I work in at a little town Called Two Wells in South Australia.I love painting landscapes and seascapes, but my works can be quite diverse as I like to test myself with different things to paint.I also like to paint with palette knifes doing abstract I only paint in oils.I love using a combination of thick paint, a palette knife and experimenting with different color tones. I am inspired by nature, whether it be seascape or flowers, and the outback to create something that is a little bit different with a modern outlook. I did sell in Gallery but I gave that away, My studio Gallery is at 1 Old Mallala Rd, Two Wells South Australia. ph 0410217656. home 85202745. hope you like my art.cheers O.J. P.S Was nice to get a write up with other artists in America.https://pappasj7.wordpress.com/ I have had a big clean out of paints and only paint in oils from now on.
