I had my first exhibition in the Northern Rivers in 1980.
Since this time I have exhibited in hundreds of galleries and won many awards across all media.
My work spans a wide variety of subjects from landscape‚ portraiture‚ natural history and erotica.
My book ' Byron Portfolio' has been purchased by both thousands of visitors and locals and my work is in hundreds of private collections nationally and worldwide. Currently painting large scale transparent oils on linen.
I am a realist artist , as that is what challenges me the most. Realism takes time - so most of the work you see on my site has hundreds of hours of work in it.
I rarely exhibit in shows these days preferring to deal direct with buyers from my studio in Bangalow, or work by commissions or through the internet.
I can assure all prospective buyers that all of these works look a thousand times better in 'the flesh' - the internet tends to rob some work of its vitality.
In a world increasingly relying on mass produced imagery, a painting by a genuine professional artist is something special, and the purchase of one will give you pleasure for a lifetime.
