ARTIST BIO

I worked as a photographer and photographic restoration artist in the early 1980's.

I always wanted to try painting however never had professional training.  I tried different classes which were very frustrating until I was recommended Sandy Baker at Long Island Group.  Sandy taught realism and the practical aspects of painting.  This was the turning point for me and I really wanted to explore and paint more.  I found the love of oil as my preferred medium and the portrayal of flowers.

After raising my family I was able to pursue my passion of painting.  In 1990 was a highlight for myself when I sold at "Camberwell Art Show".   Since then I have sold other works there and around the Mornington Peninsula and won a few awards.

In 2004 I was invited to join a local group the "Peninsula Palettes".  We had small shows and regular exhibitions at Dromana Art Gallery.  I joined Peninsula Art Society and attended many demonstrations from other artists to advance my understanding of a good painting.

From 2012-2015 due to illness I was again away from art.  In 2015 with the encouragement of Peninsula Art Society friends I joined Glenn Hoyle's art class and I've been there ever since.
