Painter and amateur photographer, based In Canberra, ACT / Colour is my inspiration and my joy.

Based in Canberra, Australia, I have been taking a break from art, but am starting to get back into painting in encaustic (wax) and acrylic. Encaustic will be more of a winter-time pursuit, because of the high temperatures involved.

For my photography I am currently using:
Pentax K20D body, with Pentax 18-250mm and Sigma 10-20mm lenses.
