My artwork has evolved from a passion for photography and love of graphic design. Having lived on the Northern Beaches for most of my life, I have a love of the sea and its many guises and influences. My most recent works combine photography with graphic skills to deconstruct & reconstruct seascapes/landscapes/still life, to produce digital collages .

I have done large commissions on canvas with works incorporating photography, paint, collage and graphics. I am constantly investigating ways to incorporate my large variety of interests into my work.. 


I attended Swinburne University art school in the late sixties, this led to a strong affinity with colour which has always been the basis for my visual influences .

A 33 year career in the 3D environment of exhibition and graphic design left little time to indulge in the luxury of doing artwork purely for pleasure. 

Now retired, I have the time to travel down creative paths and see where they lead. Like most creative people I am lucky to have an over active imagination which has led me to write and illustrate children’s books as well as to create my artworks on canvas.
