Some various ways of displaying Rottnest Island prints
Living in a northern suburb of Perth Western Australia I have close access to the Indian Ocean coastal strip which is appropriately named, "The Sunset Coast Tourist Drive". On the ocean's horizon there is Perth's holiday island of Rottnest. The Island is owned by the WA Government for the people to enjoy. (I mention this as is happens to be one of my favourite subjects to paint).
Western Australia has beautiful, vast, land and oceanscapes. With our country's weather, culture and the massive land area there is always attractions to escape outdoors. The size, freedom and colour is inspiring. Our living standards enable us to access it all, with beach and water sports, national parks, outback discoveries, wildlife and wildflowers.
I hope that my art will encourage you to enjoy and remember it is there for you. Renewing the soul, with its peace and wonderment.
When painting a piece I will usually start en-suite. Absorbing the atmosphere, drawing, planning, photographing, often beginning the painting there.
I have studied Art at West Coast Art College of TAFE.
Attended and taught art lessons and workshops. Have been fortunate enough to have visited famous galleries of Europe and America. These have had a huge impact and were big motivators towards studying Art.
I have achieved :
Three solo exhibitions, two at Rottnest Island and one in Margaret River. Occasionally take part in some Gallery and Group Exhibitions in Western Australia. Have had a painting reproduced on a wine bottle label. Am a member and have been on the committee of Wanneroo Joondalup Art Society for some time. My paintings have been reproduced into prints.
