My painting draws its inspiration from the environment in which I live and the places I have been fortunate enough to visit. Since moving to the Hawkesbury in 1987, the river, with its surrounding bushland, bridges, boats and jetties has been the primary focus of my work. Regular trips to the outback have provided an important counterpoint to this watery world.
