A sketch, a drawing or a painting is a summary of something much bigger…

I am a Melbourne-based contemporary visual artist. I sketch, draw and paint.  I specialise in portraits, in all media, from charcoal sketches on paper to detailed oil paintings on canvas, capturing not only a true likeness but also the sitter’s emotion and mood. Portraits as timeless works of art,  in any technique and with any medium. 

If you’re interested in my other work,  check out the pages with my work of People, Nudes, Music, Cityscapes, Landscapes, Animals,  Still Life, my Interpretations of work by other artists and my Illustrations.

I am a signatory member of the Victorian Artists’ Society and a member of the Hawthorn Artist Society, both in Melbourne.
