About

I was born in the Melbourne suburb of Oakleigh, and have lived in Gippsland since 1990. My preferred medium is acrylic on canvas but I also incorporate charcoal, pastel, collage and oils into my work. I have a passion for the urban environment and I frequently travel to the Melbourne CBD and inner city where I draw inspiration from the ever changing urban landscape. I have had a number of solo and group exhibitions in Victoria and throughout Australia and I have a Certificate 1V in Visual Arts and Diploma of Arts with credits and distinctions in painting and drawing.
