I live and paint in the beautiful South West corner of Australia. I have been involved with some form of art for most of my life, mainly in the disciplined field of architectural and landscape drafting and decorative painting.
After a career in landscape drafting I started painting and went on to teach Acrylic Decorative painting for many years in Perth, and was fortunate to have the opportunity to teach workshops both interstate and overseas.
During that time I also wrote and self published two books on the art, both of which were subsequently published by Viking Publications in the USA. After retiring from teaching I then owned and operated a successful retail art business for 4 years before relocating to Albany, Western Australia.
I now enjoy working with a wider variety of styles and mediums, continually researching and experimenting, and painting more expressive works in watercolour, gouache and pastel, and more recently a new found love of Plein air sketching and painting.
My inspiration comes from nature, the landscape, flora and fauna, and more recently exploring the fascinating field of portraits.
