About me

I specialise in abstract and semi-representational paintings of the landscapes, flora and fauna of Western Australia.  Recent work includes the landscapes of Shark Bay and the gorges of the Pilbara region, coelacanths, ammonites and local birdlife.  A passion for the Australian landscape drives my work, as I set out to capture its essence, with colours and textures, appropriate form and line.  

Another passion is to visit worldwide contemporary galleries and museums, including those in New York, Washington, Chicago, and England, including The Royal Academy of Arts and Saatchi in London.
