I live in Phillip Island, Victoria, Australia and have a Degree in Fine Art 1976.
My subject of choice is realism in nature and animals. I am inspired by nature’s incredible diversity, and my preferred mediums are scratchboard watercolour and oils.
My ambition is to be the best I can. I will never be satisfied and continue to learn by furthering studies and attending lectures.
My art is my way of telling a story, be truthful and respectful of the subject.
My latest ambition in 2019 is my fifth solo exhibition. This is 5-9 June 2019.
