From the artist:

‘I am fascinated by the landscape – its rhythms, colours and space. I constantly find inspiration there, appreciating the endurance, the silence and the power of remote landscapes and seascapes. In the urban landscape I am interested in cultural aspects, juxtaposition of old and new, and the life in the streets – and to capture some of that in my artwork.

A desire to express my personal perceptions of these things is the driving force behind my artwork, engaging in the never ending endeavor to convey perception in 2 dimensions on paper or canvas.

Having been a keen painter as a child, I continued to paint landscape right through to university. I qualified in engineering and subsequently also in landscape architecture and a career followed in urban design. I continued to draw and paint in spare hours and I began to put my work in galleries in this period. My subsequent move to professional artist followed from this time in the urban design sphere with the benefit of many art classes and workshops with established artists in Melbourne and Brisbane.’
