About Artist:

I have worked full time in the advertising industry for over 50 years ... from message boy to operating my own advertising art studio employing fifteen artists. The majority of my work as a graphic artist was design and finished artwork for brochures, catalogues, packaging and press advertising in both colour and black and white.

I have been fortunate to have worked in studios in Australia, Canada, U.S.A., England and Germany. I have used the skills I have gained on my travels to produce thousands of designs and pieces of finished artwork.

I attended my first life class drawing session at the St. Mary’s Kangaroo Point "STUDIO" in 1958 as an eighteen year old and I still enjoy and participate in life drawing sessions to this day.

I am a founding member and a life member of the Brisbane Art Directors Club which was started in 1974 and is still alive and well.  My son and daughter now own and run the business I started and I am free to draw and paint to  my heart's content. After all these years, nothing excites me more than a blank piece of paper or canvas AND the time to draw and paint.
