I work from my studio on the banks of the Tamar River Valley at Legana Tasmania.
It is no wonder therefore that my prints are a reflection of this natural environment.
I see the beauty that surrounds me in the trees, the ever-changing colours in the sky and river, the patterns of the flight of birds. I gain much pleasure watching the birdlife here. Particularly the resident magpies, that are very friendly and as well playful. I have seen them not only playing on the ground but also in flight. Native hens seem to be ubiquitous, always running here and there chasing each other. Occasionally I see the magnificence of one of our local Goshawks as it takes flight.
All that is associated with bird life and the natural environment, interests me.
I watch this vista as the seasons change these patterns and am forever inspired to express it .
I hope you gain as much pleasure seeing my prints of this environment as I do in making them
I have been a practising printmaker over a number of years having had solo exhibitions and been in numerous group shows. My prints have been included in the Blake Prize for Religious art and the Henry Worland Memorial Print Prize and others. I have work in the collection of the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery. In September 2023 my print ‘Magpie Antics’ was showing in the ‘Sydney Contemporary, International Art Fair’
