About

Light and form excite me, from the natural landscape to the medium of watercolour on the cotton rag. I paint in large format, with large brushes and lots of movement. I grew up in Tasmania with nature everywhere and went down the path of the old masters by apprenticing myself to a watercolour master Tony Smibert AM. He taught me from the age of 12 and mentored me intensely over a 1 year period in Deloraine in 2006. I have since found my own path and style. I am represented by galleries in Sydney (Articles Fine Art Gallery and Cronulla Gallery and Interiors) and in Tasmania (Huon Art, Strickland Gallery and Saddlers Court Gallery).
