I’m a realist artist and teacher with many years experience. Although mostly self taught I have benefited from classes and workshops with reputable and formally trained artists and I continue to develop new techniques and skills. I achieved competence in design, fine line script with illustration and presentation skills as a showcard and ticketwriter in promotional depts. in Sydney and I believe drawing skill leads to painting success.
I conduct Pencil to Painting classes and workshops for students of all levels and ages in small groups or individually in Bathurst from my studio and Pigments and Palettes, Russell St.
Students are introduced to various mediums and techniques by demonstration and practice and soon develop their own artistic creativity.
I love nature and the landscape, subtleties of light and shadow, the mood of changing seasons. I am inspired also by historical buildings, whether magnificent heritage structures or a humble corrugated iron abode of days gone by. Equally important to me is the subject of still life, capturing a moment in time. Favourite mediums are pencil, pen and wash pastel and acrylic.
