Now with Maturity, his creativity and inspiration extends to painting in acrylics on canvas. Having spent his chidhood in country Bright Victoria and years on the Mornington Peninsula he has an eye for countryside and especially the sea. His Star sign being 'Pisces' means he has an affinity with, and is at home near water, which outworks in his paintings.
Sometimes too, a hint of Fantasy is expressed in his artwork.
