Belgrave Victoria Australia
Professional artist and art tutor with over 25 years experience. I have collectors here in Australia and also USA and France
I was trained in the tonal school of painting and have been painting for 30 years. Still Life and floral paintings are what I am best known for and what inspires me most.
I live in Belgrave in a blue stone cottage with the beautiful surrounds of the Dandenong Ranges. I have won many awards for my work and have collectors locally and internationally from Paris to USA.
ABOUT MY WORK
All of my still lifes, florals and portraits are painted from life. It may take many hours just setting up the still life ensuring that the balance and lighting brings out the beauty of my subject. In the case of my floral work it may take a year to wait for the right season to arrange the flowers I want to paint. They must be flowering at the same time and of course available.
I use only the highest quality oil paints, canvas and timber stretcher bars to ensure the best quality work and archival properties.
ABOUT MY EDUCATION
I have never studied a formal arts course, instead I learned directly from artists whose work I aspired to. For a short period I undertook private tuition in the tradtional master / student method of learning.
I have since gone on to teach the method as I was taught adding to it some new interpretations I have either discovered or adopted along the way.
MY COMMITMENT TO EXCELLENCE
I have always been committed to the principle of excelling , using the best materials to produce high qaulity peices that will be beautiful for ever. If a peice is not up to scratch and does not meet my standard it never leaves the studio.

However due to different screen settings across different devices there may be some slight difference in brightness or colour, though I have never encountered this as problem from any of my previous online buyers.
