Welcome to my website
The "great southern land", Australia has on its west side the state of Western Australia which spreads over 33% of the continent. The capital city of Perth, is thousands of kms from another city.
It's an outdoor lifestyle with fresh air, bright sunlight, jewel vibrant colour, varied coastal environments and hidden treasures of land and sea. Rugged, dangerous, beautiful, peaceful, lots of space to get away. Lots of places for people to enjoy.
Take yourself on this little journey now, here, to enjoy my creations. Lucky for me I was born Australian and from farming roots learned to love this land.
Creating a painting :
I often start on site immediately; in the environment. Attempting to capture the atmosphere. I will drawing, plan, photograph and often begin the painting.
The greatest of all my inspirations were a number of the world famous Art Galleries which I visited earlier in life.
As life style allowed later on, I took up studying the Art subjects at the West Coast Art College of TAFE Perth. Over the years many art classes and workshops I have attended and also done some teaching.
Some special achievements :
Three solo exhibitions, two at Rottnest Island and one in Margaret River.
A number of Galleries in Perth have exhibited my work.
For now, I mainly exhibit with the local art society Wanneroo Joondalup AS or join in group or Shire exhibitions.
One of my paintings has been reproduced on a wine bottle label.
A few of my Rottnest paintings are available as prints which can be viewed on this this website.
