Hello and Welcome to my site
Feel free to get in touch via the email if you would like a painting commission, drawing session or want to book myself or my band for a gig, or if you have any questions.

Seascapes of the Victoria coastline in Australia, are what I am currently choosing to focus my paintings on. I aim to reflect the peace found by the water.
I’ve had many successful exhibitions around Melbourne.
Currently I have 5 large studio paintings on show in the Foyer exhibition Space at the Mornington Library.
The last in 2019 was a sell-out solo exhibition in Mornington.
‘Beauty of the Beaches’ at the Mornington Library, an Exhibition of paintings of Mornington, Mount Eliza and Mount Martha was a sellout. Join the mailing list to hear about my next exhibition.
I gratefully received the 2017 Goldstein Community Award for services to the Arts.
