I paint and photograph children and their families.
Born in Victoria, in 1955, I have painted most of my life, but have worked professionally as a photographer from my early twenties.
Set amid the gum trees of Montmorency, my home studio is disturbed only by the laugh of kookaburras and the occasional screech of cockatoos in the nearby bush.
A photographic and painting studio work well together. My lighting is second to none, and is key to both forms of art. Good control of lighting lets me concentrate on expressions and relationships, and having fun. You can capture the moments with your camera. Let me capture the mood of the moments with my camera and my brush
To demonstrate the true worth of a good portrait, whether a painting or a photograph, to those that haven’t necessarily been art lovers.
Is anything so cherished over many generations than a painting of a child?
