Extensive experience means being able to make paintings simply

and expressively. I love what I do!

The portrait, figurative and abstract landscape paintings I make help people create beautiful interiors that are calming yet full of colour and joy. Each painting is inspired by interesting situations and the landscape where I live, I'm constantly looking for unusual stories and pieces to add to my collection of random bits and pieces. And if the object doesn't fit in my pocket, I take plenty of photographs to remind me of its appeal.

As a graduate of the Queensland College of Art, I enjoyed a successful career as a painter and designer for over 40 years.

After retiring in 2008, I returned to my first loves of drawing and painting in oil and exhibit my work regularly.
