About

I completed a Degree in Fine Art at the University of South Australia (formerly South Australian College of the Arts and Education). After I completed my degree I had a mixed exhibition with fellow graduates in Adelaide. Over the years several commissions came my way.
I lived in Armidale NSW for over 20 years where I continued to paint but left painting and drawings for a number a years and took up ceramics. I completed a Certificate in Ceramics at TAFE in Armidale.
I sold my pottery at the local markets and through local Art and Craft shops.
I was involved in ceramics for about 7 years then returned to painting and drawing. In the years spent in Armidale I sold my work through the Local Art Gallery on a regular basis.
I have been involved with the creative arts all my life. My inspiration comes from nature and is an integral part of my life. Painting and drawing for me is one way I can live fully in present and hopefully contribute in some way to bringing visual enjoyment and beauty to others.
My subject matter is primarily landscapes and still life and I use this subject matter to explore the many and varied different colours, shapes and forms that exist in both. That is why my style is constantly changing.
I work in acrylic, gouache, watercolour pencils, ink, pencil and charcoal.
