I began painting after leaving school teaching and have exhibited and sold paintings in many country art exhibitions in
Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria. I had a 3-man Exhibition at the Back O'Bourke Gallery in Sydney.
I have participated in the InSudio Art Trail , Artists in Residence in the High Country Hampton High Country Food and Arts Festival and held a 1-man exhibition "Off the Beaten Track" in the Basement of the Crows Nest Community Arts and Crafts Centre.
Australia has many diverse landscapes often startling and unexpected.
It can be a very harsh land to survive in but its beauty cannot be ignored.
I am an artist and photographer and with both art forms it is all about the light.
I find the influence of light on the landscape fascinating and try to capture that mood in my paintings and photographs, though it often lasts only a fleeting moment.
The light is even more amazing in the early morning and at sunset with the warm glow and deep shadows.
I like to think I can help people to see the world around them differently with my art.
I began painting seriously after leaving school teaching and I have exhibited and sold paintings in many Art Exhibitions, Shows and Galleries.
I have been influenced by Impressionist Painters and particularly Arthur Streeton and Warwick Fuller
