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:

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.
