Hi - Thanks for checking out my art.
I am an Australian Artist who loves creating acrylic and mixed media semi abstracts, cubism and contemporary pieces based on observation of the world around me. As you can see, I particularly like colour, texture, movement and geometry. I'm addicted to painting, have a need to paint, and I want to put my work out there for all the world to see. Once again thanks for looking and I hope you enjoy my art as much as I enjoy creating it.

I have been painting consistently with my local art group since around 2008 under the guidance of many tutors. I also attend multiple weekly tutored classes and full day workshops where I continuously learn and think of new ideas. In 2019 I completed my Certificate III in Visual Arts at Box Hill Institute and in 2020 I will commence a Certificate IV in Visual Arts.
Exhibits regularly at art shows including 'Life Abstracted' at Cambridge Studio Gallery, International Flower and Garden Show, Camberwell Art Show, Whitehorse Art Show, Linden Postcard Show, Brunswick Street Gallery Small Works, Box Hill Art Group, Hawthorn Artists Society, Contemporary Arts Society of Victoria, A4 Australia, and Art Space at City of Whitehorse.
