I was born in Sydney, Australia where I grew up and worked. Ran my own Signwriting business for 21 yrs and finally moved to the Gold Coast, Queensland in 1990. The final 14 yrs of my working life were as the in house Scenic Artist/Signwriter for Warner Bros. Movie World here on the Gold Coast. Only since retiring have I found the time to slow down and spend the time necessary to paint without having to rush to meet deadlines. I now paint almost exclusively with acrylics and after all these years I am still learning something new everyday I paint.
