A collector of Australian and international art over the past 25 years, now painting professionally full time for the past 24 months. A member of the Eramboo Artist Environment in the northern suburbs of Sydney. Using simple shapes and compositions I hope to re-express both mundane and complex concepts and create images that will have viewers linger a little longer to explore and discover their own feelings and interpretations.
I measure success by the volume and diversity of debate and discussion around my work, and by how these activities can expand the works’ relevance and consequence.
My early achievements under, have been in Geometric Abstraction, Portraiture, Abstract Landscape and Social Messaging genres.
