I work across many media, acrylic, gouache, pastel, oil and occasional clay and recycled materials. A love of Natural History; a 2acre block that has become a wildlife sanctuary provides inspiration for much of my work. I love to draw and sketch. My travels result in small visual notebooks and each week I join colleagues in life drawing sessions.
I trained as a graphic artist at RMIT, Melbourne and worked in industry for 15yrs. I began teaching at Qld College of Art at George St in 1970. I then moved on to set up the TAFE art school at Townsville and in 1989 to the Brisbane Gateway Campus.
I retired to Montville 2002. I have been painting, drawing, sculpting .. & teaching as the mood takes me ever since. I am active in Land for Wildlife and Landcare groups and still enjoy illustrating and painting our Native Fauna and Flora.
I have illustrated many 'educational' books, including a Children's book ..The Book of Krumple'... about teaching children and adults to care for our Native Wildlife
