I was born in Newcastle (in the UK) in 1974 but came to Australia with my parents at 6 months of age and was bought up in Sydney, New South Wales.  At school my teachers always commented on my drawings and artistic ability but it wasn't something I pursued, instead I left high school in Year 9 to work with my dad - painting and decorating, which I am still doing today. 

In 2006 my (then fiance) and I decided to leave Sydney behind for the peaceful and inspirational surrounds of the Blue Mountains of New South Wales - somewhere we had visited time and time again, and always felt sad when we had to head back to Sydney.  We relocated to Katoomba in April 2006, married in December 2006 and eventually decided to settle in Leura in January 2007. 

It was in Leichhardt that I bought my first easle, canvases, paints & brushes (with a gentle push from my wife) and I turned my passion for drawing on paper into colourful oil paintings direct from my vivid imagination. I have now been painting for over 5 years and I love every minute of it.

I had my first solo exhibition "Never A Dull Moment" in October 2006 at The Artists Gallery in Katoomba and sold 15 pieces and 3 commissions. I have also participated in a few group shows between December 2006 and December 2007, taking out First Place for "Dusk" and awarded a Highly Commended for "Winter Magic" in an exhibition in October 2007. I am currently working on new artworks for a second solo exhibition - but with working in Sydney and only having a few hours each night and at weekends dedicated to my art, its a slow process.  I would love to have more time!

I invite you to visit my website to view my works for sale, sold works, past and current exhibitions. Or give me a call if you would like to visit my home studio to view my work in person, or to watch me at work! | Contact Us | List Your Art | List Your Art Gallery | Site Map
