I am an 'outsider' self taught Australian artist, born in Melbourne. I have been painting for 25 years and have lived in New Zealand for the past 14 years. I have returned home to Australia and reside on the Sunshine Coast Queensland.
My artwork is contemporary abstract using acrylics and mixed media on canvas. For many years it has been sold to private collections internationally and galleries in New Zealand. My work has been published in Australian magazines and provincial New Zealand publications.
All my artwork provokes health and well being, the healing capability of the visual and how it translates into our physical well being. The colours of nature - the earthy tones of our land, the mesmerising colours of our waters and the peacful greens of the trees and forests.
My use of texture light and colour can stimulate and encourage peoples imagination. Some of my work contains bold, philisophical and inspirational statements which stir the mind.
Enjoy its random composition and its ability to create and pass on energy in any space it inhabits.
Have been with gallery247 for 6 years, both free and now paid. Wonderful on line platform for artists which has made my work easy to find and i don't need to worry about setting up my own website; they even forwarded a message from a community college i volunteered for a few years ago, for an art tutor.

I have recently become a member of Gallery 247 as an artist, and am so impressed. Communication was quick and very personable. The website seems very user friendly. With the couple of questions I emailed I was looked after with a phone call and very kindly and professionally looked after. Highly recommend.
