Semi Urban Living

Description : This green tree frog came into work and after a lot of unsuccessful attempts at a photo I released him outside the factory. He climbed up the palm and posed for a photo that when I looked at later was the perfect pose. The colours of the concrete retaining wall behind him showed up his colour and the palm stems he climbed on.

I attended the Brisbane Seven Hills College of Art and now work as a sign designer and still continue to create in various art mediums including painting and pottery.

I have sold my work to private collectors, through a joint exhibition at Graceville Gallery and competitive art shows over the years. At the moment some of my paintings are in the Redcliffe Fire Station Art Gallery in Brisbane.

recently sold one of my artworks at the Lions Art Extravaganza at Northlakes in Brisbane 2019.

Having discovered the beauty of our native Australian kingfishers I have created series of nature works with Coral and Flame trees from Montville and Maleny districts. I forage for branches and leaves for reference so I can study the fine detail and create a more realistic setting for my native wildlife.

STOP! “I need a photo of that fence paling, that flower, that branch or that leaf” is often heard yelled in the car when driving and not always in an ideal place to pull over. Curious glances from the resident cows while I traipse through long wet grass to get just the right photo of a lichen covered dilapidated fence post. An artist does what they have to do.

Recently I have been doing landscape paintings of scenery on Moreton Island.
