In 2002 after moving to Mornington Victoria I gave up concert

 work and eagerly adapted to Mornington's  Artist community.

 Medium: Acrylic. I enjoy the freedom this medium-allows me.

 "Cafe Society'....Retro Style.   

 "Geisha Series". Vibrant minimal Japanese.

 Seascapes of Mornington Harbour. Softer realisim....

 "Underwater Series" exciting Diving figures in the deep inspired by Dives in Tahiti.

 I was a founding member of The Peninsula Studio Trail.  known as PST.a group of

 20 Artists across the Peninsula. 

For 18 years I have worked with the Oak Hill Community Gallery assisting

 the journey of emerging Artists and the operational side of the  Gallery.

 The highlight of 2013 was being selected to hang in our beautiful

Mornington Regional Gallery  the painting titled "A Village in France"

 The painting evolved in  Bali Indonesia where I have had the opportunity

 to paint over the past two years.

 The painters that have inspired me........

 Gustav Klimt.  Picasso...John Brack...and in more gentle moments

 the classic Impressionists  Renoir  and Monet..

 My work has been acquired by the following:

Nepean Rehabilitation Hospital Frankston (St John of God)

St MacArtans School/Church in Mornington Victoria

 & The Bays Hospital 

I have attended short workshops with the three Painters I most admire

 Alvaro Castegnat, Peter Smales,

Herman Pykel....

I am currently assisting the operations at Ryazanoff Gallery in Albert Park.
Ryazanoff operates on a global level 
& I enjoy the opportunity it offers me to be a

part of the selection process & meeting the Artists and enjoying their company.
