I have been drawing and painting since I was a child and recently I have had more time to fulfil this passion. My background is in science (particularly in biochemistry and biotechnology), which meant that my career has taken a number of turns. As a result of a strong interest in the environment, I established the National Centre for Sustainability (NCS) at Swinburne University in Melbourne in 2001 and worked there full time for 6 years. More recently, I have moved to consulting for the NCS just two days per week to allow myself more time to paint with a group called The Artists Group.
My work includes landscapes, still life and portraits. As I am dedicated and committed to the environment and sustainability, I particularly enjoy painting the Australian landscape. I enjoy working in everything from watercolour through to oils, as well as pen and ink.
I have been mentored by artists such as Jan Vincent and Anne Esposito - both wonderful inspirations.
I hope that you enjoy my art as much as I have enjoyed painting it.
