I work in my studio full-time, with some time out to travel and to get into the ocean as often as possible, and I'm also, once again, doing environmental work. I've drawn and painted in oils since the age of 5. Watercolour and aquarelle sticks, pen & ink, acrylic paints and inks, charcoal and the occasional sculpture came in college art classes. Full-sized wall murals started in grad school. Oil is my first love, but I'm comfortable with just about all drawing and painting materials.
Sydney has wonderful trees and their forms and light patterns have been my on-going theme, for trees' beauty, for the way they create space around us and for the sense of power and majesty one gets from them. Water has always been a fascination, whether a koi pool or the ocean, because of the extaordinary effects of changing light and movement. I've done portraits, largely on request. I take a sketchbook with me when traveling.
I traveled professionally a lot, and have lived in several countries. I've had work in shows, galleries and am in private collections in several countries and I've also been Visiting Artist, summers at Art Study in Giverny France.
I now work out of a wonderful spot: the Artists District of Headland Park, run by the Sydney Harbour Federation Trust.
The work listed is described as in the studio or in someone's collection. Please come by the studio and see for yourself. I'm there most weekdays and some weekends, but a phone call first is good. It's a lovely park area, with good walks along Sydney Harbour, and there's a good café, so please come visit:
