About

I have received awards judged by such noted artists as Carl Anderson‚ David K Taylor‚ Richard Chamerski and Kevin Boucher. Many of my paintings have been purchased by interstate and overseas buyers. I have been commissioned to paint Australian landscapes in watercolour for hanging in Malaysia.
These days I mainly paint in watercolour or acrylic‚ and occasionally have a dabble in pastel. Though recently have rekindled the love of using oils and water soluble oil‚ and have experimented with silk painting. I received an Hon. Mention for a silk painting at the 2013 Kilmore Art Expo‚ judged by Richard Chamerski‚ and another Hon. Mention at The Art Beyond the Divide Art Expo in Seymour judged by the Assistant Curator of the Benalla Art Gallery‚ Best Oil in Show‚ Broadford Art Show 2015 judged by Karolyn Mitchell. Pleased to receive Hon. Mention at Wooded Art Group's Annual Show November 2016 judged by Tim Jones for oil painting Sunset Lancefield/Woodend Road.
