Born in Medindie South Australia in 1955
I have spent 40 years of my life using my brushes in the highly disciplined art form of sign painting, the control of the chiseled brush tip to create beautiful letters in countless fonts including personalised scripts and casual styles has been the joy of a highly creative career. I now transfer this skill to my artwork, my painting simplifies the environment to basic form; much of the brushwork is indicative of the real world and presents a relaxed informal peace. I feel enhancing the natural environment with bold colour is essential to draw the viewer into the work.
During the creation process it is as though time is slowed, like watching a time-lapse video, the more paint laid the more attached I become to the work, it is addictive.
Each painting in it’s simplicity is message about life, symbolism and mood, joy and darkness, peace and harmony.
Please take your time viewing the gallery, I value feed back, I hope you enjoy my work.
Thank you to all my friends and family for encouraging me to pursue my art,
