"My paintings are inspired by the magnificence of the Australian landscape"

I was born and educated in Kalgoorlie – the Goldfields of Western Australia. Having spent the first part of my life in Kalgoorlie, the surrounding bush and my Mother, who was an artist and lecturer, were the earliest influences of my artistic self. I can remember my love of the trees, their blossoms and fruits, and the vastness of the landscape. I used to draw as a child and as a young adult was a potter. The growth of my creative endeavours has undoubtedly been influenced by the diversity of my life.
