Fine Artist, Graphic Designer and Illustrator
Art has been a part of my life from the time of my earliest memories. As a child, I would always seek out pencil and paper and spend hours drawing all manner of things. As an adult, I pursued careers as an illustrative signwriter and commercial illustrator and later turned to fine art as an outlet for my artistic desires.
Today, painting exclusively in oils, I am particularly interested in the moody effects of light and shadow, especially the long shadows cast by the morning and evening sun, and I see each painting as a memory of a time and place. I spend a great deal of time out in the elements, painting en
I also get a great deal of enjoyment from arranging and painting still life setups in the studio. With these, I get to play with a much richer palette of colours and to direct the scene as I choose.
I was pleased, this week, to be invited to hang my work at Riverfront Gallery in Denmark, Western Australia.
As the name suggests, the gallery is located right across the road from the magnificent Denmark River. The gallery space has been expanded in recent years and features amazing works by a number of artists working in different styles and media and I think my paintings will feel at home there.
Denmark is a small tourist town nestled alongside the Wilson Inlet on the south coast. It boasts world-class scenery from surfing beaches and rocky coastline to tall karri forests and hilly farmland. So next time you find yourself anywhere near the south west or south coast and with a little time to spare, be sure to drop in and see Denmark.
In the meantime you can visit Riverfront Gallery on Facebook.
