My work has taken me all over the world, but major recurring themes include Antarctica and the wild regions of Australia. Over the past 25 years I have exhibited widely in Australia and completed public and corporate commissions in Australia and overseas.
I employ a variety of mediums, but favour gouache on paper for my all-important en plein air field studies, and oil and acrylic on canvas for more considered and detailed studio paintings.

Examples of my work can be view by appointment at my Sydney studio. I'm also happy to discuss the commissioning of work at any time.
