Artist's Statement
" "
Australian Artist specialising in Figurative, Social Commentary and Semi Abstract paintings.

I like to capture the fleeting glimpse that is usually experienced when a particular moment is seen in that first instant.
I’ve studied all the major techniques and styles and have always found that sticking with one particular artistic style or technique as being too restrictive, thus I like to bend the ‘rules’, and push beyond the boundaries. To experiment a lot more and incorporate the fusion of several techniques and styles. This gives me the freedom to remain more true to the mood of the artwork….

Some Historical Facts About My Art:

Both times because the people in charge did not believe that the paintings I had submitted for their annual exhibition were made by me. In their words they did not believe that someone my age could have the maturity to paint like that. I felt peeved, couldn’t be bothered to dispute them and never went back……......1972 and 1993

Joan Gough from Joan Gough Gallery once stated publicly at a major Contemporary Art Exhibition that in sheer technique I was unbeatable………………………………………1986
