Past exhibitions include 12 solo and many group exhibitions.
I am in a group exhibition: 'Dolci' opening 16th October 2019 at Rochfort Gallery, North Sydney.
I have always painted and drawn and began my working life as a Graphic Designer. Since 2002, I have been a full time artist. I have been known as en en plein air painter, which I feel has helped and driven me to my current working style... I start in the field but finish them in the studio, always trying to simplify and reduce. My past method of drawing (drawing roughly in oil paint or charcoal to start the work) is now something that comes in at the end of the work, where I am drawing back into the wet paint with oil pastel or oil stick. After reducing the colour planes, it is something to help bring some definition back to the work and draw the eye. But as Degas once said (apparently!) "Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things".
Working mainly in oil and gouache.
