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.”

    Love this Cary….. the colours and her expression…. there’s that washing theme again…………………. lol! : ))

  • Thanks Jenny….yes I love painting this kind of subject matter, the work of women interests me as much as the Endeavors of Men. I think it was Chairman Mao who said “Women hold up half the sky”. I don’t believe in the the old “behind every great man there is a great woman” saying..
    .I truly believe that women are equal to men and should be treated as such!
