I am a qualified Professional Counsellor and Illustrator, Author and Autism Therapist from Melbourne, Australia.
Since I was able to hold a pencil or finger paint, I have been passionate about creating art pieces which are usually highly detailed and realistic (as much as is possible). My father was a Professional Illustrator and Architect and he was my mentor and guide as I experimented with and refined my artistic skills.
I particularly love producing pastel, pen, pencil or charcoal sketches of animals. Soon I hope to create some sketches of the delightful and gorgeously green tree frogs.
I also enjoy photography and capturing unique moments in time. Some of my works displayed on this page are created in this way.
If you would like to see more of the styles of art work I produce (pointilism and pastel nudes), the books I have written and my articles on Autism, you can look at my websites Realist Art In Oz (art) or Heart and Soul of Autism (books and articles written for UK and US magazines).

News for 2016.
I have now changed genre of my art style and am now focusing on what I have called “drippour” acrylic painting. This is where unique and beautiful abstract designs are created by pouring shimmer and/or matte acrylic paints onto a canvas. I will add images of these pieces to my Redbubble page as I produce them and they will be available as prints.

I am gradually adding some of these new abstract and modern designs to my page and hope you all enjoy the fun designs I have created. My passion for illustration hasn’t ebbed but my desire to enjoy a wonderfully creative and abstract style, which I enjoyed …
