Art has always been central to my life. As a child I pencilled, and later pen-and-inked and pen-and-washed my way through many pads of cartridge paper. For many years, prominent Adelaide artist Ruth Tuck tutored me and in recent years in Melbourne, I have worked in portraiture and oils with Lee Machelak at the Royal Victorian Society of Artists.
I have won a number of prizes over the years, using various media, including being one of 5 artists winning the Victorian section of an Australia-wide ceramic table-top painting competition. Two examples of these tables can be seen in Paintings here. I have also been published in educational publications and have illustrated two recipe books. My black and white pen sketches depicting prominent buildings in both Kensington and Buninyong have been reproduced onto cards, and have been immensely popular.
Other works, much of it commissioned, are in private collections overseas and in Australia, including the Department of the Arts in Canberra. I have held a number of successful solo exhibitions and been included in galleries in Melbourne, Port Fairy and Ballarat.
I prefer to work from life but return to my studio to complete works. I now mainly paint with oils on canvas and still sketch with pen and ink, and do many pen and washes.
In 2011 I entered ‘The Archibald Prize’ portrait competition. My subject was Kerry Greenwood, author of the Phryne Fisher books, seen in a 12 part series on Australian ABC1 television as ‘Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries’, now about to go into its third series.
In 2012 I entered ‘The Archibald Prize’ portrait competition once again, with a portrait of Gai Waterhouse who is a race-horse trainer. In 2012 one of her horses came second in the Melbourne Cup. In 2013 she won the Melbourne Cup!
In 2014 I again painted Kerry Greenwood and entered this portrait into The Archibald Prize competition.
All three of these entries can be seen on this site under Paintings. I can be commissioned to paint portraits. Please contact me to discuss your requirements.
This year I have spoken to U3A groups on the topic of The Archibald Prize. I was also privileged to speak to the Watercolour Society at the Victorian Artist’s Society, also on the topic of The Archibald Prize.
Please contact me if you would like me to speak to your group and/or to purchase one of my works or commission a piece for yourself or for a gift.
You are welcome to make an appointment to visit me in my studio in Kensington, Melbourne.
