I have had a fortunate and enjoyable art career. With residencies, overseas travel, publications in books and magazines, interesting commissions and exhibitions that have seen my work sold across Australia and overseas. I am inspired by our beautiful wildflowers and wildlife. Dedicated to realism I strive to portray the essence of my subject. I have recently discovered pastels, and I am new to acrylic. I have added pet portraiture, painting blue and white Chinoiserie objects, still life, fine coloured pencil…

I love the Bay’s ever…
