I studied Architecture in Western Australia and after graduating moved to Melbourne. Over the next few years, I attended night classes in art & pottery. Follwing this, the focus moved to my Architectural career and I have only recently returned to painting; although the years spent on design and drafting have provided a solid foundation for my artwork. My local environment, travel and nature are all inspirations and subject matter for my oil paintings of landscapes, seascapes and still lifes. My art journey has been rewarding, with each new painting presenting unique challenges and outcomes. My aim is to continue with the current themes, incorporating a contemporary element to further works.
