Welcome to my website
The "great southern land" of Australia, has on its western side the state of Western Australia. This state covers over 33% of the Australian continent. Its capital city is Perth and from here many thousands of kilometers need to be covered to reach any other country or city.
It's an outdoor lifestyle with fresh air, bright sunlight, jewel vibrant colour, varied coastal environments and hidden treasures of land & sea. Rugged, dangerous, beautiful, peaceful and lots of space to get away. Lots of places for people to enjoy.
Take yourself on this little journey now, here, with me and enjoy my creations. I have been lucky to be born Australian and from farming roots love this land.
Creating a painting :
I will often commence on site with sketches, notes and photographic records. Thereby attempting to capture the atmosphere felt. Painting may start then, on site and continued in the studio at home.
The greatest of all my inspirations were some of the world famous Art Galleries which I visited earlier on in my life. Then, as life style allowed, later on in life I took up studying art history and painting. This covered various subjects at the West Coast Art College of TAFE in Perth. Various other art classes and workshops have followed. Occasionally I have been asked to teach as a relief teacher.
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 Wanneroo Joondalup Art Society or will enter into group and some 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 website.
