Art & me
On completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the National Art School in Sydney in 2015, I have spent the next six years painting landscape. A major work Southerly Bondi occupied nearly a year. I then spent a most enjoyable interlude sketching and painting on location in the Western MacDonald Ranges in Central Australia. This formed the basis for a series of studio landscapes showcased at my solo exhibition in Sydney in September 2018.

Born in 1956 and brought up in Sydney, I married my beautiful Swiss partner Ruth in 1983. We have raised two wonderful creative daughters – Helena and Olivia - now in their thirties.
At an early age painting and drawing became a real love. This passion continues!
I hope you enjoy my art!
