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.”

    Charming and nostalgic work full of emotion and life!

  • Thanks Seth, I painted this back in the 80s, a mate of mine named Livingstone aka ‘Livo’ bought it. Livo lived in a cane barracks just like the one in the painting!
