I was never really artistic growing up. I would doodle and copy cartoon characters as a kid, but didnt like art at school.
After 6 and a half years in the army, followed by 17 years in the Police, I ended up in a Veteran's Hospital. I was introduced to Art Therapy as a way of managing PTSD and at first didnt take to it. But in November 2018, while hospitalised, I was sitting at a table with a few other Veteran's while one was painting and I started drawing. I purchased a set of cheap oil pastels and added a bit of colour and before I knew it I had found my medium.
A year later and I love drawing with Oil Pastels, I have well over 1000 different colours/brands always looking for something slightly different. I am involved in a Veteran's Art Group and show my work in exhibitions through this group and at the Jamie Larcombe Centre, the Veteran's Hospital that saved my life. I am starting to branch out and do some painting with acrylics, but its not the same.
I love drawing Australian Landscapes, I have been lucky to see alot of this country and love the colours that it possesses. I also enjoy seascapes, which i think comes from recently moving to the a seaside community.
I always have something on the go and am happy to do something on request.
So watch this space!!!!
