‘Featured Art’ in the Brissie! It’s short for Brisbane Group

I love cricket. It is a subject that I paint on a regular basis. I was only a ‘champion’ in the ‘Backyard Test Matches’. Played a bit for my school. I particularly love the Test Matches between the Aussies and the Indians & especially ‘The Ashes’ between The Poms and The Aussies! A highlight of Summer is to listen to Grandstand on the ABC in my studio and paint away the days.

Cary drew in biro from the age of 4 until his first oil painting at the age of 16. With the strong foundation of the values of drawing when he began painting there was an explosion of bright colour in his art. The creative flood-gates had opened! Cary has won many Art Awards all over Australia, ranging from The Portland Art Prize and more recently the Bendemeer Art Prize (twice).
“With my art, I focus on the beauty of our environment and our effect we have upon the natural world.”
