Paintings & Pastel work
I was born and educated in Hamilton...
As a young school student I won numerous awards and prizes for Freehand sketching and drawing. An upholsterer by trade my freehand skills were of great assistance to the drawing of plans and designs.
My love of the outdoors, pig hunting, deer stalking, fresh and salt water fishing shows works in with my work that I produce today.
My first choice media was Oils, but since having lessons in Pastels I enjoy both now. I still love free hand sketching.
I'm mostly self taught with the assistance of the occasional day Tutor, with the Coromandel Art Group of which I'm a member.
In the past two years I have been to courses with Maxine Thompson, and as a Member of PANZ I've attended their courses too.
My studio is at 95 Pagitt Street which is open to the public.
