About

My formal training is in architecture and graphic design, but I've been painting for years.

Predominantly I paint abstract landscapes – particularly colourful semi-abstract ones. Moody is good, if I can capture it. I'm more interested in the essence of a place than a literal representation. I also like accidental effects and the intermixing of edges of brushstrokes the tensions they bring to an artwork.

I also do figurative works, generally on a smaller scale, but hopefully that will change.

Education

I'm a self-taught artist. I've learnt most of my craft through books and experimentation.

Exhibitions

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. I only occasionally submit works for art prizes, and have been a finalist in most of those that I have entered:
– Semi-finalist NSW Parliament Plein Air Prize 2015
– Finalist, Waverley Art Prize 2013, 2009
– Finalist, Mosman Art Prize 2008.

Along the way, I've also had my artwork reproduced as coffee-mugs, rugs, greeting cards and fine-art prints.

Influences

Diebenkorn, Schiele... and a few hundred others.
