I have been painting with watercolour since 1998.
I paint in a fluid and spontaneous manner, which allows me to capture the mood and atmosphere of my subject with a style that encourages the viewer to involve one’s self with my work. Watercolour is a wonderful medium for expressing these qualities.
I cover a wide range of subjects from landscapes, town life, flowers, portraits and figures. Any subject can lead to an exciting work of art.
Artists, I believe, see the world with more intensity through active observation, so are able to show people something they may not have seen or noticed.
I am always looking for an interesting viewpoint which I can bring to my audience allowing them to connect more closely to the world around them.
The Australian Artist Magazine has published my articles on two occasions as has The Artists Palette Magazine.
I have a published book titled, “Mastering Watercolours – a practical guide”, which can be purchased from Amazon.com as both a paperback and an e-book.
