My original training was in architecture, but I've also been a graphic designer and painter for many years.
I'm a self-taught artist. I generally paint semi-abstract landscape works, but also do figurative subjects; all generally with an emphasis on bright colours and expressive brushwork.
I'm interested in 'edges' – the edge between abstraction and representation; but also the physical edges of paint – the way adjacent areas of colour and line blend, contrast or interact to promote dischord or harmony.
I've learnt most of my technique through books and plenty of experimentation.
I've been exhibiting on and off for 20+ years, with city, regional, interstate and online representation, with works held in private collections in Australia and overseas. have also had periods in which I tutored in drawing and painting.
My work has been reproduced in design and illustration books, and periodicals.
Currently I also have a number of self-published books available from Blurb and/or Amazon.
Schiele, Diebenkorn ... and a few hundred others.
