In 2015 I achieved a Bachelor of Fine Arts majoring in Painting from the National Art School in Sydney Australia. The following two years, 2016 and 2017, were taken up with painting of a major commission entitled Southerly Bondi as well as commencing a new series of work on beautiful Central Australia’s McDonnell Ranges.
In 2018 I completed this McDonnell Ranges series, and these works formed the centre piece of my second and very successful solo exhibition in Sydney entitled The Heart of Australia. During this year l also painted several portrait commissions.
2018 to 2020 were spent overseas – 18 months sketching and painting, principally in Europe and in particular Italy. Here I enjoyed experimenting with a European palette. Back in Australia I have returned to my passion for Australian landscape.
The resultant works of these last three years formed the basis of my very successful third Sydney solo exhibition entitled Journeys in April 2022. Also in 2022 I became an Exhibiting Member of the Royal Art Society of New South Wales so as to meet with fellow artists and for exchange of ideas.
My future plans include a series on the Blue Mountains west of Sydney and lots more sketching and painting landscapes of beloved Australia.
