    ACTIVITIES

    My teaching and painting careers have merged since graduation from university in 1990 I was awarded the Alice Bale scholarship valued at $30,000 in 1995 followed by 18 months in Europe studying classical portraiture and still life, being greatly influenced by master painters of Britain and Spain.

    I love teaching to students, beginners and advanced any medium but the rules of casual observation and order of visual importance dominate my teaching methods. I encourage my students to work from life, exhibit, study the Master Painters and take themselves seriously.
