Safely tucked away on the higher branches of a Sydney Red Gum, this little raider watches me with interest. I took this photo on one of his nightly visits and used it a basis for this pastel rendition.

My artwork ranges from the traditional, to the slightly offbeat.

With the wildlife and landscape, paintings, I like a more photo-realistic approach, with light, colour, emotion and a sense of space, being key components.

My cartoons are a little quirky, with themes and styles varying according to mood.

    Such a lovely pastel possum, Tom. I saw one leaning up against the power pole on our driveway coming home from work one night – so funny, like he was waiting esp for me. Nice painting and composition :-)

    Haha….he is pretty cute. Even though in NZ they are a complete pest :)

  • I think they are here too in Aussie. :) I thought they were soo cute when we first arrived from Africa, so as soon as I had taken a few snaps, I started “pastelling” – not sooo popular I found out :)

    One of them rushed me one night in a park. Now I steer clear!

  • You must be furrier than you think :)
