I always enjoyed drawing as a child and whilst I was able to do some art
through school my first real tuition came from a Flying Arts workshop in
country Central Queensland. The medium was pastel and I felt a smooth
transition from drawing with pencils to using pastel sticks to draw and
also paint. Since then I have attended many workshops with
professional artists and continued to expand my skill base.
My inspiration comes from nature and the world around me. When I see
something that grabs my interest I take photos and as a result I have
thousands of ‘Inspiration’ images just waiting to be brought to life on
paper. I enjoy creating realistic works depicting people, landscapes,
animals and still life although I have recently enjoyed creating some
mixed media works, which tend to be more abstract.
