Whale Moon Rising - Oil on Can

I have been exhibiting in galleries and art fairs on the East Coast of Australia for twenty-eight years. My oils, watercolours, pastels and silk paintings have been included in 27 group and 9 solo exhibitions in NSW and Qld, my Art of Wingdom fine art giclee prints and cards retailing in 14 solo displays. The love and concern I feel for our beautiful beaches and waterways, and creatures of all kinds, is evident in my works. I have won prizes and worked on numerous private commissions, curated shows, published paper and canvas fine art giclee prints and cards, created an online gallery, and tutored oil, pastel, watercolour and silk painting both privately and for various colleges and centres. My work ranges from romantic Realism through Nature Nouveau, scapes and Fabulism to Imaginary Realism and Visionary art, and includes figurative, still life, portraiture, spiritual and polemic art.
