Location: Australia

Self taught artist. DOB: 1953. Bachelor of Laws ( LL.B ) University of Melbourne ; Graduate Certificate in Art Authentication University of Melbourne (within the faculty of Arts and The Centre for Cultural Materials Conservation).

I have started to paint and sculpt more as I have gotten older. It is for me a most satisfying diversion. A large part of my enjoyment comes from just thinking about how I will go about creating something well before I put brush to canvas or start fashioning a sculpture.
However, the greatest satisfaction comes from jumping in and actually doing it. Painters who have influenced my approach to painting are Matisse, Kandinsky, Picasso, Dufy and some of the German Expressionists.

A limited selection of my work here is available for sale by way of framed prints, t- shirts, mugs hoodies, clocks and iPad iPhone covers etc at my shop : “20Apple” on Redbubble.com.

These Shepherds tended their flocks of sheep in the marshes of the Gironde region amidst endless forests of pine and walked on stilts over the marsh, wearing clogs and sheep skin coats, topped off with beret basques.
