the techniques of painting and sculpture gave him an inevitable direction to
pursue art as a career.

until turning professional in 1976.
Always driven by a powerful creative need his diversity and depth have
sustained him through the tribulations of professional art.
range of subject matter, experimentation and technique in the pursuit of that
always elusive artists muse (excellence) has seen his work develop to the stage
where he is represented extensively in corporate and private collection
throughout Australia, the UK, Europe, USA and Asia. Passion and commitment drive him to
continually seek new ground with the tradition of using only the best materials

composition produce works that are often dramatic and powerful. An abiding
interest in contemporary sculpture has him placing his sculptural designs as a
compositional element within his more enigmatic larger works..
I like my works to
have something else about them.Something beyond the immediate
image enigmatic, even a little surreal. They should reach people like a painted
emotionWhatever the subject matter.
I will always be
restless and passionate and feel the need to continually develop and explore as
an artistThis is a journey through a landscape that is part of our DNA Our
need to create and be inspired.
