G’day and Welcome 

Let Me Introduce myself

I am a Qualified Graphic Designer & Australian Watercolour Artist,
located overlooking the beautiful Lake Macquarie, near Newcastle, New South Wales,
approximately 2 hours north of Sydney, Australia..

A diverse range of subjects, generally influenced from a love of sailing, marine, birds, horses and all animals, & roses. Always striving to transform my photos into drawings, then onto paintings, whilst enjoying the Journey along the way
