Ive been painting since i was three years old,inspired by my father who was into art in a big way at that time and became his apprentice signwriter.I went to Brisbane Central Technical College and studied signwriting,pictorial and screenprocessing before joining the Army in 1969 for six years.After discharge i painted while operating my signwriting business with my first wife in Sydney and sold my paintings at market venues until i approached Grace Brothers who ordered one hundred original paintings straight away for their twelve stores.Painting then became a knock em out challenge for me and once delivered i was over whelmed by hundreds of incoming orders from the different stores.Painting was no longer satisfying and i couldn’t keep with demand so i terminated my account. I sold paintings in hundreds of exhibitions and won numerous awards in Queensland and N.S.W.I turned my hand to a spiritual influence in the year 2000 after my second divorce eight years after becoming a paraplegic from an ongoing Army injury.At that time I was starting to walk but suddenly lost the lot because i was in too much of a hurry to get stuck into life .I suddenly realised i wanted to have fun painting and started painted accordingly whereas before i painted what i thought people might like,big mistake.I am now progressively getting stronger and happy with who i am.l sell original artwork and very large canvas prints of my work from my website which is still currently undergoing improvements and ready to access soon.
