I have been a full time artist and art teacher for many years. For the past 8 years I have been lucky enough to be contracted to the world's largest cruise lines to teach art onboard throughout Asia, Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific.
I profile myself as an eclectic painter, meaning I paint in all genres and mediums. Sometimes I feel like painting abstracts, other days I wake up and feel like painting impressionist works, hyper realism, or even cartoons. What you see is what you get!
2017 I was awarded international juror status with ArtMaster Australia International.
2019 I was a resident artist for Mark Hughes Foundation.
2020 I was awarded 6* cruise status, meaning I hold "resident artist" status onboard the world's most luxurious boutique cruise lines.
2021 Featured Artist Fine Art America.
My works hang in private and corporate collections throughout Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Canada, USA and Europe.
I create art because...
Art is my life
I am different to most artists because...
I simplify the complicated, and brighten the dullness to make ordinary extraordinary.
When you look at my art, the thing I want you to feel is...
Bold and bright inside and out.
The thing I most want to say to non-artists is...
What are you waiting for?
I believe art is an important part of our lives because...
Without art, life is not worth living
