Welcome to my Website.
These pages include a few examples of my paintings from the 1970’s to the
present day, along with details of my background as painter.
I consider it a privilege to work as an artist, to contribute to the arts
community, and to share the society and friendship of so many wonderful
Australian artists, students and art lovers. I hope you may find some of the
following material of interest.
professional artist for his entire working life. A painter in oil, his work also
features watercolour and pastel and includes a great variety of subject
matter – portrait, landscape, still-life, flowers and figure. Trained in both
traditional and modern methods, he has always been drawn to the
tradition of representational painting with a particular emphasis on the
"tonal" factor and the depiction of light, natural effects and appearances.
His primary interest focuses on the long established genre of pictorial
realism found in successive European masters such as Velázquez, Chardin,
Constable, Corot, Fantin-Latour and Manet.
