Location: United States
Following my training in Fine Art and Design at the West Australian Institute of Technology (now Curtain University) I came to the United States to enter the French Fashion Academy in New York where I studied for several years.
I have travelled extensively throughout Asia studying textile design. During my college studies, I had my first exhibition of drawings and paintings at age eighteen. The Lord Mayor of Perth, Sir Thomas Wardle opened the exhibition and bought one of my works for his offices at Council House.
I have taken on Abstract Expressionism to convey an understanding of a visual communication between human emotional energy and spirituality of nature. These works relate to the world globally.
I work in oils, acrylics and other mixed media to integrate the textures and line symbols used to create an aesthetic balance found in nature between land and water.
I have soloed many times in a Cessna150 to understand aerial views of the landforms and incorporate this into my works.
I have exhibited in Australia, New York, California, Texas, West Virginia, Maryland and Florida. I have degrees in Graphic Design,(Aust.) Classical Piano and Theory (Aust.) and a Gerontology degree from West Virginia University. My current studio is in Boca Raton Florida, USA.
