About me

Industry Arts
Occupation artist
Location Hobart, Tasmania, Australia
Introduction I grew up in Lindisfarne, a suburb of Hobart, capital of Tasmania. Studied art in Melbourne under Wesley Penberthy and Ming Mackay and have had paintings hung in the Blake Prize, Glover Prize and other major exhibitions. My paintings have won many awards and have been acquired by Monash University and by private collectors Australia wide, as well as in Canada, UK, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, France, Germany and Japan. I exhibit regularly and my work can frequently be seen in mixed exhibitions at galleries in Hobart. You can also see recent work on my website, www.tasmanian-gothic.com. Several years ago I returned to my old family home in Lindisfarne, where I have my studio and do my art.
