  • Artist’s Statement

    I have always taken the ability to draw a picture for granted. Even as a child, I was able to turn my thoughts into a picture and was surprised to discover, when I started school, that not everyone could.I did go to art classes at Brisbane art college and high school, mainly to avoid geography,but didn't take art too seriously.
    After leaving school, I became a jeweller and funnelled my creativity into precious metals and became very good at producing miniature works of art (jewellery)
    eventually specialising in the restoration and production of the classic styles i.e. victorian,edwardian ,art deco and art nuevo.
    after many years of working in metal s and more recently in glass, I have found the medium of pastel as something that gives me a greater degree of control of my work, enabling more definition and control with my work. So far my art has been devoted to animals and birds, "doing things" like squabbling over food, hunting fruit in the forest or about to take flight. I try to capture a moment, the sun striking the iridescent wing of a bird for example. Just a glimpse and it's gone . I am only beginning my journey with pastel art, can't wait to see where it ends up.
