I am an artist who is currently residing in Port Macquarie,, Australia. I retired from art teaching in 2005 and am now working full-time on my art and art interests. I am an art judge as well as occasional adult art teacher and art critic.
I mainly work in coloured pencil and feature aspects of the Tasmanian landscape, abstraction and Christian symbolism.
I was awarded Master Pencil Artist Status by the Canadian Pencil Art Society on August 1, 2014.
I am an Ambassador for Caran d’Ache in Australia.
