An Australian born artist with an early interest in art that eventuated a second career as an artist after a successful career as an institutional banker. Reacquainted my art passion with classes at Julian Ashton Art School.
Obtained a Diploma of Visuals Arts from Northbridge Visual Arts School, undertaken various courses, Art Est and National Art School and completed a certificate course from University of Newcastle for Natural History Illustration.
Prior to Art, had a undergraduate and masters degree in Commerce at University of Sydney and University of New South Wales.
Greatly influenced by both the classical techniques and impressionistic art movements and in turn oriental and expressive art styles. Artworks are composed to capture a vivid balance of texture, drafting, colours and design for an overall aesthetic. Michaelangelo, Brueguel, Margaret Preston, Van Gogh , Pisarro and Hokusai are unchanging favourites.
Inspirations are from my travels, environmental causes and wildlife. Exploring and observing the interconnection of relationships that exists with nature.I look to assert their beauty and raise the importance of protecting and conserving the environment.
I also teach at art workshops around Sydney.
Otherwise, you'll find me in busy in my own art studio, painting or drawing and always with the music on.
