My childhood was spent on a rural property surrounded by horses, cattle, dogs and cats. A beautiful landscape of hills and a river. Later in life I enjoyed many trips to Italy.
All of this has had a profound influence on my painting. It instilled in me an appreciation of the beauty of nature.
Now painting has become a way of life for me, hardly a day goes by without lifting a brush and every moment is an observation of form and color. Something to study continually and then as a result, pass these images on to others to enjoy.
