About

I started painting from an early age, experimenting with all traditional mediums and fInding myself most comfortable with acrylic on canvas. However, during my art school years the lure of pure design attracted me to the advertising industry, where for over 40 years I worked as a multi international award winning art director, both here and overseas.
My past academic training in drawing and design are invaluable. In fact, it is these atributes; good draughtmanship (drawing) sound composition (design) and an eye for detail that form the basis of my art.
Painting has been a bright light superimposed on my career as a graphic designer and art director. The process of painting and sculpture has become one of life’s great pleasures. Like all disciplines, however, there are the ups and downs that challenge one on many unexpected levels.
Retirement has given me the time to return to my first love as an artist.

Influences

It is difficult to pinpoint inspiration. Each artist has a unique set of influences that bring inspiration to their artwork.

I'm inspired by my surroundings.

I'm inspired by my travels around the world.

I'm inspired by the extraordinary diversity of Australia, the rich palette of colours from the burnt oranges of the outback to the pristine golden sands of our beaches.

I'm inspired by the need to express myself in a way that I'm unable to in words.

All these things influence my artwork.
