About the Artist

 Grew up in Sydney Australia. In 1993 I again pursued my passion for art, painting ,studying drawing and portrait courses at the National Art School Darlinghurst Sydney.

I aim for all of my works to bring colour and enjoyment into the owners home. My goal is to depict my subject in a manner that focuses on and reflects their inner character.My portraits show an infusion of striking oil colours that are renowed for representing the subject using a colourful palate that captures their peronalities.I love to use a kaleidoscope of iridesent and vibrant oil colours that allows me to make the portraits come alive and shimmer when light reflects on them.

I have painted many high profile subjects and often have only a very limited sitting period in which to capture the subjects essence. Some of the celebrities that I have painted and who have commissioned me include the Hon Malcolm Turnbul MP, Mrs Roslyn Packer OAM, Joh Bailey, James Morrison, John Morrison, Gai Waterhouse, The Hon Helen Coonan, John Cavill, Courtney Act, Peter Doyle OAM, Proffesor Geoffrey and Mrs Brynne Edelsten. 

I was thrilled when all of the above mentioned portraits have been selected as finalists and/or award winners in major art exhibitions Australia and Australasia wide including the Archibald Prize, The Cliftons Art Prize, The Doug Moran,The Portia Geach Memorial Prize,The Black Swan Perth, The Shirley Hannan National Portrait Award, The Lexus Mortimore Art Award, Mosman Art  Prize and many other regional and local prizes.
