I am situated in the beautiful Blue Mountains of New South Wales, Australia. I create my sculptures in the scenic town of Bullaburra which is at an altitude of 2,500 feet, between Penrith and the famous tourist town of Katoomba. I hope you enjoy my passion for sculpting and collecting all types of exciting Animal sculptures.

    I agree with adgray this looks like a Monet. Wow. Very good. Keen mind for his age to be painting this way. Love it. Iris

  • We are tryng to encourage him to paint more . When he sees all the beautiful comments from Red Bubblers it might give him some incentive.
