I have been painting in oils for many years, under Terry Hadler, professional artist. Recently, I have discovered a love of pen and ink.
My interest in the sea has been a lifelong one and many of my paintings reflect this, from a windswept coastline to a busy port. My love of the Australian outback is also a passion as an Impressionist artist.
I exhibit and sell at a number of commercial venues and art shows including The Bays Hospital, Mornington, Flinders, Cardinia, Nossal, also Rotary Art Shows in city and country Victoria.
