Born March 4, 1957
Long term resident of Dandenong Ranges
I am an emerging artist living in the Patch in the Dandenong Ranges. After a 25-year career in local government I am now focussing on a long-held passion for expressing myself creatively through painting. My paintings have sold to various private individuals in Melbourne and I also produce a range of art cards and prints for sale and am happy to take on commissions. I have also been putting my toe into the portrait world and find it a challenging and wonderful experience. Check out my Instagram for more.
Working mainly in oils, I use bold colour and line in my mostly dramatic abstract pieces. I am fascinated by the colours and patterns in nature and find inspiration through both the micro and macro levels of observation of the world around me. I love to create work where I get lost in the colour and the pattern and am delighted when others respond in the same way.
Since early 2016 I have been studying under Nell Frysteen at Red Door Studio, in Research, Victoria.
