I have been painting in oils for a number of years, under Terry Hadler, professional artist.
My interest in the sea has been a lifelong one and many of my paintings reflect this, from a windswept coastline to a busy port.
My love of the Australian outback is also a passion.
I exhibit and sell at a number of commercial venues and art shows, namely the Continental Hotel, Sorrento, Oz Art Gallery, Mount Martha, The Bays Hospital, Mornington, Flinders Art Show, Cardinia, Nossal, also Rotary Art Shows in city and country Victoria.
