I am a Aussie fella - born in 1952 - I live in Cowra in the Central West of NSW.
I currently teach computer skills at a Community Centre... when I'm home- I am usually doing some kind of artwork.
I have been doing art all my life and I am basically self taught.
My current art ventures are created on canvas using acrylics and pigmented inks.
I use both an airbrush and paint brushes to render my paintings.
My subjects of choice are:
- Portraits (human and/or animal)
- Rural landscapes
- Old farm buildings and machinery
- Steam trains
I like commissioned work and will usually tackle whatever is requested.
I have won several art awards over the years.
My creativeness is inspired by the artworks of Norman Rockwell (USA) and Hans Heysen (AUS).
The best advice ever given to me was:
"Never do what you do just for the money, do it because you love it... If you love it, then you will do a good job and somebody will buy it"
