Artistic Practice

Since 1979  I have been working as a visual artist primarily in the mediums of watercolour, soft pastel, and oils. My work focuses more on colour and emotion rather than a representational approach to my immediate environment. My art Practice has been my main source of employment for the past 10 years  



 1973:  Fine arts diploma(painting) Ryde Technical College (uncompleted)

1981-1983 private tuition/mentorship with renowned mid north coast (NSW, Australia) artist, Ray Hilan

Since that time I have been essentially “self taught”. Experimenting and developing unique watercolour and oils methods and style.
