Originally from Sydney, I have spent a large part of my life living and working in the Hunter Valley.
I work in oils, mainly on linen and canvas. My style has developed over 20 years of painting. Often overpainting and scratching back and relaying the paint work.
I have tried to eliminate the ‘object’ in my work. Probably from the photographer eye, always looking at the object. In doing so , what is left is the energy of form and direction of effort. Once the object has been removed , the paint work becomes the focus and with oil, it shows its delicious consistency.
