I began painting in 1979 studying at the Royal Art Society of NSW in North Sydney under the tutelage of Ron Stannard and the late Garret Kingsley. I became an exhibiting member of the Society in 1980. I started in watercolour then went on to do oils which my mother who was an artist gave me tuition in oils.
I have exhibited in may galleries in and around Sydney and have won many awards for my oils and watercolours. Judges included Ray Harrington, Warwick Fuller, John Wilson and Colin Parker. I have been painting for 40 years, love it and am still learning.
