I was born in a small town in the Rockies in Canada, came to Australia as a young man, and stayed. I took up art in retirement and although I don't have any formal training, I do have a real passion for it and if there’s a secret to it, i guess that's it.
I find landscapes and portraits equally challenging and gratifying- for about the same reasons: there seems to be an infinite amount of both.
Have a look around. Hopefully you’ll see what caused me to paint them in the first place. Enjoy.
NOTE: The sizes given are the size of the frames; the actual sizes of the paintings would be approximately 8 cm smaller with the larger paintings and 4 cm smaller with the smaller ones.
