My passion always has been ART. I love connecting the soul with my Artwork,  especially for the Portraiture commissions.I left New Zealand at 22 with a Diploma of Fine Arts to study in National Art School at Darlinghurst NSW Australia ,majoring in photography.Following that, I studied Graphics and Design at Randwick.

Always painted with passion, selling my work and teaching. Exhibiting my work at Kings College, St Joseph's, Newtington and local Art Socieites in NSW. Australia

Also in demand for workshops and teachings. From there I moved to Brisbane > selling and painting orders for  Portraits From Photos. Capturing the soul and spirit in animals or people to wonderful landscapes such as the Famous watercolor ..."Walk'n the Rain'

Exhibiting in Brisbane at the Pine Rivers Art Show, Kilcoy, Caloundra and even the Brisbane RNA Exhibition. 

However Portraiture became a huge demand >selling  Portraiture to America, Canada, all over Australia,New Zealand to Russsia....and many more*

Teaching Art to students at all levels, mostly all learning from scratch to succesfully exhibiting and selling their work. Wonderful rapport with students with now having brillant results with their work.
