My forte as an artist has been in the areas of colour and design. Inner city architecture has attracted my attention and I have developed this to a contemporary style and incorporated oil pastel, collage, cloisonné paint, charcoal and gouache. These paintings have a high drawing content which I have endeavoured to produce in a loose style by drawing with the brush only and painting line and wash simultaneously.Conversely I have also concentrated on landscapes of the Australian outback with practically no drawing content but which give the opportunity of displaying well the nuances of watercolour.
I have been the recipient of over 150 prizes including a prize of excellence in the World-Wide Shenzhen Watercolour Award, runner up in Basil Sellers Award and published in 14 Watercolour Books including the World Wide Watercolor Book “Best of Watercolour”.
